NDIS Participants and Supporters Resources
The Housing Hub is a nationwide housing matching platform created by the Summer Foundation as a social enterprise. The Housing Hub is a way for people with disability to find suitable housing and providers to list housing available. Properties may include existing SDA properties, new SDA builds, non-SDA accommodation, private rental, properties for sale, community housing and shared accommodation.
On the Housing Hub you can create your own Housing Seeker Profile and search for homes faster. Get notified when new properties are matched with your preferences.
