Who can use it?
Children and adults looking for full-time supported disability accommodation.
How does it work?
Cara can work with you in a range of supported accommodation for people with disability. We are committed to working with you to find the place that’s right for you.
Accommodation 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 accommodation which includes
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.
