Improved Living Arrangements
Help to find and maintain a place to live
We can provide support and guidance to help you find accommodation that is appropriate for your circumstances, or improve the circumstances in your current home.
If you have a current NDIS plan with approved funding for ‘Improved Living Arrangements’ under your capacity building supports category, you may be eligible to access a range of our supports.
Our Improved Living Arrangement supports may include helping you to apply for a rental, meeting tenancy obligations or ensuring the home and area you’re living in is appropriate to your needs. We’re here to help ensure you’re well connected with other supports and providers so you have choice and control over how you want to live your life.

Improved Living Arrangement Support
What is Improved Living Arrangements?
Out of the three primary categories in an NDIS plan, Improved Living Arrangements falls under the Capacity Building category.
We can give advice and help facilitate your move into a new home or supported living environment by connecting you with housing providers or our other partners to ensure you feel comfortable and independent.
It’s important to note that we only coordinate these services and do not provide housing services ourselves.
How do I get funding for Improved Living Arrangements?
To access capacity building and improved living arrangements funding, it’s important you accurately describe your current living arrangement and how a new or improved arrangement would improve your quality of life. This should be done during your initial NDIA meeting (or in your annual plan renewal meeting).
As with most other application processes under the NDIS, it’s a good idea to gather as much evidence as possible from your GP or other medical professional to support the description of your circumstances. For Improved Living Arrangements, this may include details about restricted mobility impeding your ability to catch public transport as an example.
