Increasing independence and choice through a range of accommodation options
Multicap Tasmania can assist you with a variety of accommodation options that provide the appropriate level of support to meet your needs and aspirations.
We operate a range of accommodation options across Launceston and the North West Coast, designed specifically to suit the needs of people with disability who need accommodation.
Our accommodation options include a mix of units, houses, villas, group homes, and a large residential facility. These accommodation options provide for people with a broad range of disabilities where assistance with daily living is required.
Our accommodation options are broadly based around 2 different models of support:
- Supported Independent Living (SIL) (also known as Supported Accommodation)
- Lead Tenant model
Within our supported accommodation, Multicap Tasmania provides full-time care and support, with an ability to tailor our supports to best meet the needs and goals of our NDIS participants.
Our Lead Tenant model is best suited to people who wish to live independently and require support for just for a few hours a day, in a managed community.
Our accommodation options provide for increasing independence and community engagement, allowing you to live the life you choose.
Who can access Multicap’s supported accommodation?
People who wish to access Supported Independent Living will need to be assessed by the NDIS for their eligibility to SIL supports. Generally these supports will only be available to people 18 years and older accommodation services. Once SIL has been approved, Multicap can work with you to find an appropriate option.
We always consider the compatibility of residents in our accommodation options. When you let us know that you’re looking for a new home, we will consider your age, gender, health needs, interests and personal requests, to ensure you and your fellow housemates are well-suited and likely to enjoy each other’s company.
Who can access Multicap’s lead tenant model?
People who wish to access our Lead Tenant model should contact us to determine if we have any vacancies. You will also need to have this type of support added to your NDIS plan.
People who have not yet transitioned into the NDIS because of age can also apply to access this service by contacting the Gateway Services provided by Mission Australia in Devonport.
