Accommodation/

Tenancy

A participant will generally be able to access funding through the NDIS for transport assistance if the participant cannot use public transport without substantial difficulty due to their disability. Funding takes into account any relevant taxi subsidy scheme, and it does not cover transport assistance for carers to transport their family member with a disability for everyday commitments.

Please Note: This information is related to participant transport arrangements and does not relate to travel for providers of supports as detailed in the Support Cluster Definition and Pricing document on the website.

Trusted Homes

The Disability Trust provides quality housing supports to people with disability, through our Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA), housing and tenancy management services for people with disability.

  1. Regular housing inspections and maintenance reports, 

  2. Tenancy satisfaction surveys and feedback mechanisms, 

  3. Accessible choice and control initiatives to support tenants’ rights to select flatmates and have say about shared living (SIL) arrangements, 

  4. Individualised tenancy accommodation agreements,
