CHL is NDIS Ready

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a new way of providing support to over 460,000 Australians under the age of 65, who are living with a permanent and significant disability. Since 2013, the NDIS has been progressively rolled-out through the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA).

CHL is an experienced and multi-award winning provider of disability housing accommodation. Our developments account for particular mental health, physical or sensory disability issues. This includes independent apartments, semi-detached studios, group homes, adaptable units, visitable units and key ring apartments.

Over 1,800 people living with a disability are currently renting from our housing portfolio across Australia.

Under the NDIS, CHL is a registered provider of Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) and can assist eligible clients via a range of options:

  • We have an in-house NDIS Project Manager to facilitate clients’ experience under the new Scheme.
  • We offer client consultation to navigate the NDIS in relation to their housing goals and needs.
  • We can liaise with the National Disability Insurance Agency on clients’ behalf.
  • If required, we can accompany clients during visits at their Local Area Coordinator (LAC).
  • We work with clients, their families and support providers to jointly develop personalised housing to ensure clients’ well-being in their new homes. We support this option with shared equity or sole equity provision.
  • Our in-house architects develop homes that comply with the design requirements for SDA under the NDIS.
