ADHC Supported Living Fund (SLF) Provider
The Supported Living Fund (SLF) is a form of individualised accommodation support funding for adults with disability aged 18 to 64 years. People with a disability should have real choices and control over decisions on: where to live, who to live with and the supports required to live the lifestyle they choose.

Individual Accommodation Support Packages (IASP)
The Individual Accommodation Support Package (IASP) is an accommodation support option which is individually funded. It enables you, your family and carers to choose the accommodation supports you need to continue to live as independently as possible while maintaining existing support networks. This might involve living with family, with friends or independently with support. Respite Choices will assist to design an agreed individual support plan that meets your disability related needs.
