The Freedom Housing design, makes it possible for persons with disabilities, who require some personal care and supervision, and up to 24/7 high care, to live in a normal house - or apartment - with family, friends, housemates, or independently.

Persons who require high-care are able to live in Freedom Housing style homes through every phase of their lives: child; young independent adult; parent; old age, and end-stage: palliative care.

Freedom Housing also provides care for the elderly (aged care). A mix of care needs may be accommodated under the same roof in a privately owned - or leased - home.

Each house is uniquely designed according to the owner families' preferences for fabric, appearance, lifestyle, and inclusions. 

The advent of 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 and your family - or friends - to live in your own - or in a rented - Freedom Housing home.

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

Freedom Housing fully complies with the: 

  • United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities                                                                                        
  • Objects and Principles of the NDIS Act 2013: Australian Federal Parliament

Concept plan (not building plan) for Freedom Housing now being developed in Sale (East Gippsland VIC) by George Gray Centre: more.


Freedom Housing is the recipient of the Australian Human Rights Commission Award for Business (2013)

Freedom Housing is endorsed by the Department of Health and Human Services (VIC)

Freedom Housing is currently the most human rights compliant care and housing model: PDF.

This world-first innovative design is disruptive. It displaces demand for:

  • respite homes
  • group accommodation homes
  • nursing homes 
  • supported accommodation
  • independent living units
  • retirement villages
  • rehabilitation facilities
  • hospice care
  • hospital care

Freedom Housing has ushered in the era of non-institutional care. The paradigm of private 24/7 high-care housing has arrived.

SUPPORT FOR 'FREEDOM HOUSING' STYLE HOUSING FROM THE NDIA

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."
