Accommodation Support

Updated My Life and Somewhere to Live Booklet

This updated booklet is a simple guide for people with disability, their family and carers to get help with their life and a home that’s right for them.

The original “My Life and Somewhere to Live booklets” are included below as examples for organisations to adapt as required. While the information in the booklets is out-dated, the simple style and some content may be useful to include in materials about your services, and therefore save you time and money. If your organisation does use the ideas in these booklets in your own materials, acknowledge the source of information as Family and Community Services.

Accommodation Question Guides

The Accommodation Question Guides complement the suite of Accommodation Support resources and help individuals and their families to make informed choices about their future accommodation options.
