Supported living

The Supported Living Fund can help people with disability to live more independently either at home or in the community.

The funding can be used to buy the supports people need to help them do this.

The Supported Living Fund can help you work out:

  • where you want to live
  • what you need to do if you are going to move
  • what sort of help you need to live more independently
  • Help you make friends and be part of your community.

 

How will Coastlink help?

Coastlink will support you to prepare a Person Centred Plan which lists lots of things about you and what you want to do and how you are going to achieve these things.

At Coastlink you will be encouraged to choose the people you want to support you, and to contribute to job descriptions, job interviews and staff selection.

We will work with you and your family and volunteers so that you have all the support you need as you become more independent in the community.

Community involvement is very important and Coastlink will help you to join in doing things like computer courses, joining the local sporting club, having a coffee with friends, cooking a meal for your family and friends in your home or anything else you want to do.
