Disability housing making a bigger entrance

Published

Disability housing is becoming big business in more ways than one. Earlier this year disability service provider, Northcott, partnered with specialist disability housing (SDA) provider DPN Casa Capace to design a ‘first of its kind’ disability housing hub in Sydney’s Oran Park. Now it’s the turn of the portable home with The Summer Foundation launching an accessible housing prototype that fills the gap for transitional housing. (See following story).

“We know there is a large market for disability housing that will emerge over the next 10 years, which is likely to be in the region of 30,000 to 40,000 in NSW alone,” Northcott deputy CEO, Lee Carpenter told F2L. “These people will expect a range of different housing options to meet their needs and it’s for that reason that Northcott has sought different opportunities to partner with organisations to combat the unmet need for people with disability looking to find a home of their own. This new approach of creating purpose-built properties, with non-government organisations and developers working in collaboration, is looking like it will be the new way forward.”
