Victoria is committed to the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) and its principles of choice and control. Every NDIS participant should be empowered to exercise choice and control in every part of their life – especially in choosing accommodation.
Current regulations around rights in supported accommodation were made for a different disability services model, which makes it difficult for residents to change service providers in their home.
To update this legislation, the Victorian Government wants to hear from you about what you like and don’t like about the current legislation, and what you would like to see happen in the future.
Any new legislation will work to support residents to move wherever they like and know their tenancy is secure and rights are protected.
This will happen hand in hand with the community so that people with a disability, their families and carers, staff, service providers and advocacy groups can all have a say.
