HomeShare and NDIS ILO Co-residency from Community Connections
Are you looking to share your home and gain extra support or at-home companionship at the same time?
Or perhaps you are looking for a low-rent or no-rent housing option and would be willing to offer some in-home support or companionship to your housemate in return.
We match householders -- who are often people with disability or older people -- with home-sharers who agree to provide assistance with daily living supports (up to 20 hours per week). Home-sharers are not required to provide personal care, health care or administer medication.
HOW HOMESHARE ACT WORKS
We help meet people’s housing and support needs with:
Individual Living Options (ILO) co-residency (funded for eligible NDIS participants)
HomeShare ACT for non-NDIS participants, with or without disability, who live in the ACT
HomeShare seeks householders who have a spare private room and could benefit from a supporting housemate.
We work with potential householders and home-sharers to create a partnership that meets the needs of both individuals. We will:
help householders to find the right home-sharer.
introduce potential home-sharing partners to each other to decide if the partnership is the ‘right fit’ for both.
undertake police checks of the potential home-sharer at no cost to either partner.
establish an agreement between the partners.
provide ongoing support and monitoring of the arrangement.
assist homeowners to find new home-sharers when any partnership comes to an end.
