Stan and Allie are both vision-impaired and had been moved from one temporary home to another, until they were finally forced to live together in an abusive environment where neither of them felt safe.
After enduring a series of threats from another housemate, the distressed couple turned to PWDA to help with their dire situation.
How PWDA helped
Our advocates stepped in to help Stan and Allie live independently in a new home, but with the support and community access they needed.
Allie wanted access to a range of resources to recover from the effects of the trauma. PWDA helped guide the couple through the NDIS process, to arrange a plan that allowed them to be included in the wider community. The improvement in both their physical and mental wellbeing was remarkable, and they continue to live happily – and safely – in their own home.
