Disability Accommodation Services

At Vinnies NSW, we believe that a home should facilitate wellbeing, belonging, independence and safety. There are many ways we can work with you to achieve this.

As an organisation who has supported people with disability for over 25 years, we understand the importance of offering accommodation that helps people to thrive.

We are leading experts in providing care for young people with disability and complex needs and understand the challenges faced when moving out of home. It can be a daunting and uncertain time, but we are here to work with participants and their families to find the best outcome.

Working with you:

When you contact Vinnies to discuss disability housing options, we will together discuss opportunities that may work well for you. This may include

  • Living with a group of friends; or
  • Identifying a suitable property with our Specialist Disability Accommodation partners

We then work with you to match you to the right accommodation option and ensure it is suitable for the long-term.

Vinnies NSW offers, and/or works with its partners, Supported Independent Living, Specialist Disability Accommodation and Short-Term Accommodation which are explained below.

What is Supported Independent Living?

Supported Independent Living (SIL) is help with day-to-day tasks at home. This is so you can live more independently and learn new skills. Examples of things you may get help with through SIL include:

  • Personal Care
  • Preparing meals
  • Shopping assistance
  • Household chores
  • Cleaning
  • Going out into the community

At Vinnies NSW we are committed to seeing you live as independently as possible. We do this by making a personalised plan which outlines the skills you want to develop, and the steps to be taken to achieve this.

Our caring and experienced staff will support you each step of the way. We celebrate your wins, support you through 

We also explore individualised options for adults who are looking for Short Term Accommodation with support.
