Our carefully designed flexible service model supports both independent and shared living options for NDIS-funded participants.
At St Jude’s, we recognise that it may be possible to adjust your current living arrangements to give you a greater degree of self-sufficiency. We work closely with you and your family to source a living arrangement which allows you to achieve greater independence and that, most importantly, feels like home.
We offer accommodation support with the key purpose of providing you with a genuine sense of place, a strong connection with your community, an increased sense of belonging and enjoyment of a safe and supportive lifestyle that’s driven by your choices.
We currently offer more than 50 welcoming, thoughtfully designed and aesthetically pleasing homes located across Perth and WA’s south west region. Our rapidly growing portfolio caters to your preferences, ensuring you have choice around where you live, how you live and who you live with.
Permanent Disability Accommodation
St Jude’s recognises that people with disability may have unique living requirements and their current living arrangement may not maximise independence. We work closely with you to source an appropriate accommodation option which allows you to achieve greater independence in your day to day life, all while ensuring we can provide a house that truly feels like home.
In offering accommodation support, our key intention and drive is for you to experience a sense of home, strong connection with your community and an increased sense of belonging and enjoyment of a safe and supportive lifestyle that is driven by choice rather than by the constraints of a disability.
We currently offer more than 40welcoming, carefully designed and aesthetically pleasing homes where the preferences and needs of our clients are central, located conveniently across Perth and WA’s South West.
To ensure we can provide you with the best outcomes and choices pertaining to your living arrangements, we are continually expanding our accommodation portfolio, to source options which best align with your needs and desired lifestyle. We want to empower you to be able to exercise choice when it comes to where you live, who you live with and of course, how you live.
All St Jude’s accommodation options are professionally managed, with your safety, privacy and comfort of utmost priority.
In addition to providing accommodation services, you will have access to the full breadth of St Jude’s services, to assist you with your daily living activities and achieve your personal goals. Some of our services include but are not limited to community participation, therapy and support coordination.
Before selecting a home for a potential NDIS participant, we assess your unique strengths, support needs and compatibility with other NDIS participants. This is to ensure we can provide the best possible solution and living arrangement that best suits your needs and preferences.
