Accommodation for People with a Disability

VAGO Publication large

Tabled: 12 March 2008

In 2003, almost one million people or 20 per cent of all Victorians had a disability. Of these people, around 323 300 or 6.5 per cent had a severe or profound limitation that inhibited their ability to care for themselves, communicate clearly or undertake normal cognitive or motor development tasks.

The Department of Human Services provides support for people with severe or profound disabilities either in the form of shared supported accommodation with 24-hour support or an individualised support package. The objective of this audit was to determine the extent to which people with a disability receive accommodation and related support services commensurate with their need.
