Housing and Living Supports

Tailored support for individual choice and comfort

At genU, we firmly believe in the fundamental right of individuals to choose where and with who they live. With this principle at the core of our values, we are dedicated to providing a diverse range of housing and living support options tailored to meet the unique needs of each individual. Whether you require short-term accommodation or are seeking a long-term living solution, we offer comprehensive support to ensure that everyone can find a safe, comfortable, and empowering living environment.

What are home and living supports?

Navigating the journey to find housing and tailored supports can feel daunting. It all begins with securing an National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) plan, including Supported Independent Living and/or Specialist Disability Accommodation funding.

NDIS plans are approved by the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA). To learn more about NDIA plans, visit What is an NDIS plan? | NDIS.

At genU, we recognise that everyone’s needs are unique. That’s why we take the time to understand your goals and guide you through the process. We tailor our supports to your unique goals, connecting you with the right resources and housing solutions.

Housing and Living Supports offered at genU include:

Short-Term Accommodation (STA)

Short-Term Accommodation, sometimes referred to as respite, provides support and accommodation for when you need to live away from your usual home for a short period of time. We currently offer STA only in Victoria.

Supported Independent Living (SIL)

Supported Independent Living (SIL) is a form of assistance aimed at enhancing your independence by providing support with daily tasks and skill-building. It involves paid personal supports such as assistance with personal care, meal preparation, and household management tasks.

SIL funding is generally allocated for individuals requiring 24/7 support within a shared home or environment.
