Freedom Housing makes it possible for persons with disabilities who need low care (early intervention) and up to 24/7 high care, to live in a house - or apartment - with their children, extended family, friends, housemates, or independently. 

They are able to live in Freedom Housing properties through every phase of their lives: as a child; as a young independent adult; as a parent; in old age, and for the end of life stage (palliative).

Freedom Housing is also ideal for aged care. A mix of care needs may be accommodated under the same roof in a privately owned - or leased - apartment or house. Four houses or apartments are conjoined by internal space through the Freedom Key (click two times on plan).

Each property is uniquely designed according to the owner families' preference for fabric, appearance, lifestyle, and inclusions. The homes are private residences: their privacy is strictly respected.

The NDIS has rendered the Freedom Housing model feasible, and affordable for the Australian household. If you have an NDIS care package it may be possible for you to be an owner-occupier or tenant in a Freedom Housing home.

Freedom Housing promotes human rights; is more efficient; is socially cohesive; is more economical; is more economically productive, and respects the dignity of all.

* Fully complies with the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, and the Objects and Principles of the NDIS Act 2013: Australian Federal Parliament
* Is the winner of the Australian Human Rights Commission Award for Business (2013)

SDA: Special Disability Accommodation

NDIA statement:

"Ensuring that people with disability have real choice and control over where they live and who they live with is an integral component in supporting NDIS participants to live ordinary lives.

For that choice and control to exist, the supply of innovative, affordable and accessible housing needs to increase.

The prices and processes contained in this paper have been designed to encourage the growth of that supply, whilst ensuring as smooth as possible transition for people in existing supported accommodation."
