Your pathway home is unique to you. Where you want to live, who you wish to live with, who will support you in your new home. These decisions are yours to make. And we are here to help smooth the way.
The My House Project is an independent advisory service for NDIS participants and families wanting to learn about and explore housing options. Our highly skilled and experienced team understands that finding the right home is about more than choosing a house. There are many important steps along the way that need to be understood and navigated with care. The My House Project includes support to develop a housing plan, connect to providers of choice and find housemates with similar interests. We work collaboratively with a participant’s care team and chosen housing and support providers to help each individual reach their housing goal.
Through our extensive network of quality providers, the My House Project offers participants a wide range of choice across Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA), Individual Living Options (ILO) and mainstream housing.
Your home, your choice.

SDA Project Team
The SDA Project team works with SDA providers to build brand new SDA homes that achieve the goals of My House Project participants.
If your dream is to share your home with someone else, the project team will work closely with you and your support team on matching potential housemates through therapists, programs and trials to ensure the best possible results.
The SDA Project team work collaboratively with SDA providers on the design and location of new SDA homes in consultation with participants and their support team.
The My House Project and SDA Project teams are dedicated to ensuring participants live in a home that supports them to increase their independence and be a part of their community.
We also appreciate that moving into a new home is a big step for everyone in the family. Our teams welcome and support families to be involved throughout the process, and to remain a big part of their lives of their loved one.
