What is it?
Accommodation is your home. The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) calls it Supported Independent Living.
How does it work?
Cara can work with you to find the right Supported Independent Living space for you.
The actual house or apartment is provided by Housing SA, private landlords and a number of community housing associations, including Access 2 Place, Unity Housing, Julia Farr Housing and Bedford.
You, as the tenant, sign the rental agreement with the housing provider. Cara provides the staff to support you.
Cara supports people living in spaces like:
Traditional share houses, or group homes
You share a house with other people who also have disabilities. You have your own room and sometimes your own bathroom. You share living spaces and outdoor areas. There is a staff bedroom in the house, too.

Cluster site accommodation
This is a group of units on one site. You have your own unit with your own bedroom, kitchen, bathroom and courtyard or backyard. There is a staff unit on the same site.
These are a number of apartments dotted throughout a new block at Woodville West. Cara has a “concierge” apartment in the same building and concierge staff can support you remotely to control the lights, air conditioner and open the apartment door if you wish.

Cara can also work with you if you have or are buying your own property or to help find housemates if you have room in your family home. Cara supports children and adults with Supported Independent Living across Adelaide and all over South Australia.
