Submission To Senate Economic References Committee Inquiry Into Affordable Housing

The housing system is already in crisis, with the needs of people with disability frequently unmet.  Moreover, the introduction of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) will increase the pressure on this already broken system as people with disability become empowered to seek better supports and more appropriate housing options. This submission argues against the use of institutionalisation as a solution to policy failure in housing of people with disabilities.
