Specialist Disability Accommodation

Specialist Disability Accommodation

 

Compass has a long and successful history of managing homes for people with high and complex support and housing needs.

In a recent transfer of Disability Group Homes from the NSW Department of Family and Community Services to the non-government sector, Compass took over the tenancy management of 103 group homes in Sydney, Northern NSW, Illawarra/Shoalhaven, New England, Southern NSW and the Central West.

 

We welcome our newest residents and pledge to fully support your accommodation requirements and to provide you with your own safe space to live, for as long as you need.

 

How we do it

Over 30% of our 5,400 tenants have a disability. Compass has a long association with the disability sector and we work with our support partners to provide independent living and supported living and community participation for people with a disability.

In the recent transfer, Compass as the Specialist Accommodation Provider (SDA) formed partnerships with Supported Independent Living (SIL) providers LiveBetter and House With No Steps to deliver high-quality disability respite and accommodation services.
