Exposure Draft Of The ‘Supported Accommodation Innovation Fund’

July 2011

Housing options for people with disability must not result in the congregation, segregation or isolation of persons with disability, each of which is a key accelerator or facilitator of abuse, neglect and exploitation of persons with disability. It is of great concern to PWD that, despite evidence of the detrimental aspects of congregate living arrangements, some governments continue to license and fund institutions and some are being redeveloped into ‘contemporary’ institutions that continue to congregate people with disability and segregate them from community life.
