Home and Living

About My Home, My Choice

My Home, My Choice is a 2-year project that will support people with:

  • Intellectual disability
  • Global delay
  • Down Syndrome

This program will use peer support to help people:

  • Understand their home and living options
  • Share their experiences with others
  • Make informed decisions about housing
  • Connect with others in the community.

Helping people with disability understand their housing options.

Self Advocacy Sydney’s project has co-designed our housing roadmap with adult NDIS participants with intellectual disability using a peer support model.

Peer Support Mentors will be employed to help participants understand their home and living support options.

This project will use easy-to-understand accessible audio-visual resources to:

  • Build individual capacity
  • Guide participants to understand available options
  • Make informed home and living decisions based on choices available.

The co-created resources will make use of the online platforms such as YouTube to broadcast home and living options to a wider audience.

Self Advocacy Sydney have been awarded a 2 year funding grant from the NDIA for this project.
