The Accessing a Home project aims to identify and address barriers people with disability face when seeking adequate, accessible, affordable and safe homes.

Carers WA has partnered with Foundation Housing, a leading community housing provider, to undertake this systemic advocacy project. 

The project will:
  1. Consult with people with disability and their families and carers to determine and detail their experiences of accessing suitable housing in Western Australia.
  2. Identify opportunities for reform and advocate for changes to the system to address the barriers identified.

People with disability and their carers are at the core of the project and we are seeking feedback from you on your experiences in seeking, gaining and maintaining a home.

There are several ways you can get involved

1. Complete the survey

We have developed a survey for people with disability and/or their families as well as service providers to gain some information on what people are looking for when they seek a home and the barriers experiences in gaining housing.

Survey link available here.

2. Participate in in-depth interviews

In order to understand the journey towards finding a home we are conducting interviews with people with disability and/or their families. 

3. Consultation sessions

We will be organising workshops to gain feedback from people with disability and/or their families on their experiences in accessing a home which suits their needs.
