Description

Disability-service provider Cara to launch housing forum in Adelaide

A place to call home is an important part of everyone’s future, and it’s no different for people with disability.

That’s why Cara is bringing a range of experts to Adelaide for a special forum – The NDIS, Housing and You.

The NDIS, Housing and You forum is based on a case study provided by one of the families that Cara supports as they plan for the future for their child.

Cara is now seeking expressions of interest from community members who might like to attend the forum, which is planned for Wednesday, 28 June, 2017 commencing at 6pm.

Attendees will have the chance to meet industry experts from NAB, Unity Housing, and Perks, as well as Cara’s expert staff.

Cara Chief Executive Liz Cohen says the forum will appeal to a wide range of people.

“Cara’s forum is ideal for individuals with disability and their families to explore what homes might look like in the future.

“However, people who are interested in investing in building accessible property should also attend, as the government provides generous funding to landlords under the Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) allowance, which is part of the NDIS.

“At Cara, we want everyone to be able to plan for their own future, and that includes the people we support and their families.”

The forum will only go ahead if there is community interest, so your registration is vital.

Please contact Theresa on 8347 4588 or email tnottle@cara.org.au to register your interest.
