What is Supported Living?

Support with independent living gives you flexibility and control over the type and level of support you receive, ensuring you get the support you need when you need it. This may be during the day, evening, weekdays, or at the weekend.

Whether you live on your own or with family or friends, our drop-in support can assist you to live independently and our independent living skills training can help you to become more independent or prepare you to transition to a more independent living arrangement in the future.

We’ll work with you, your family, and your support network to plan the right type and amount of support for you to meet your goals.

If Supported Living (or drop-in support) doesn’t meet your specific needs right now, you might like to consider a Shared Living home. We have a number of vacancies and virtual tours available now to help you weigh up your options.
