The NDIS rollout is beginning to have a significant impact on a number of CHIA Vic members and their tenants, both in the development and management spaces. This includes those seeking to develop new Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) and managing existing stock as the environment for both housing managers and support providers changes.
These changes also extend to ‘the Other 94 per cent’ who do not receive SDA funding and access other housing options such as community housing. CHIA Vic has held a scoping meeting with a few members to begin to understand how the changes in support are impacting on tenants – but we need to do more.
CHIA Vic has engaged experienced consultant Joseph Connellan to bring together interested CHIA Vic members for meeting with the view of establishing a CHIA Vic NDIS and Housing Interest Group.
Interested members are invited to attend this inaugural meeting and participate in designing the operation and work plan for this Interest Group. Joseph will distribute a briefing paper to those who have registered a few days before the meeting, which will be held on Thursday, July 5 at CHIA Vic.
