Welcome to the January edition of the Housing Hub News for Housing Seekers!

Work with us!

On our website and social media channels, we often feature the writing and stories of people with disability. We plan to do this even more in 2023.

Would you be interested in…

  • Writing an article about your experiences? (We can assist you)
  • Talking to us about your experiences, so we can write an article about them?
  • Doing a short video interview with us about your experiences?
  • Working with us to improve our website, resources and live sessions?
We are also looking to work with parents or siblings of people who may be eligible for SDA – particularly people whose disability makes it hard to express their own needs and experience.
We will pay you for a contribution.

If you would like to know more, we would love to hear from you! Email us at housingoptions@housinghub.org.au or call 0418 851 20.

Moving out of a Nursing Home

If you’re a person with a disability living in a nursing home, or a group home, it can be really hard to imagine moving somewhere
else
– even if you don’t like where you are living and want to move.

We’ve created a video series where Helen describes her experience leaving the nursing home and moving into her new SDA apartment.

In each episode Helen talks about:

1. Challenges and barriers to moving
2. What supported me to move
3. Coordinating my daily supports
4. What life is like now
