Do you have a family member with high support needs who is living an individual supported living arrangement such as:
Their own home (owned or rented) — living in their home with visiting support
A shared house — living with other people and sharing costs, with visiting support
With a Co-resident — sharing a house with a person who provides support
With a Host/Alternate Family — living with another family
Professor Errol Cocks has been funded by the Australian Housing and Urban Research Institute (AHURI) to explore the following questions and is seeking your input:
• How did the individual housing arrangement come about?
• How does the quality of housing and support arrangements contribute to positive outcomes and benefits for your family member with disability?
• How are high quality individual supported living arrangements sustained over time?
