HomeShare And Individual Living Options

Looking to share your home and gain extra support or at-home companionship at the same time? Or are you looking for a no-rent or low-rent housing option and be willing to offer some in-home support or companionship to your housemate? We match householders – generally people with disability or older Canberrans – with home-sharers to provide some assistance with daily living (up to 20 hours per week). Home-sharers are not required to provide personal care, health care or administer medication.

How It Works

We can help meet people’s housing and support needs with:

  • NDIS Individual Living Options (ILO) co-residency (where funded in an eligible NDIS participant’s plan)
  • HomeShare for non-NDIS participants, with or without disability, who live in the ACT

Community Connections seeks householders who may have a spare room and could benefit from a supporting housemate.

HomeShare will work with potential householders to create a partnership with a home-sharer who matches your individual needs. We will:

  • help householders to find the right home-sharer for you
  • introduce potential home-sharing partners to each other to decide of the partnership is the ‘right fit’
  • undertake police checks of the potential home-sharer at no cost to either partner
  • establish an agreement between the parties
  • provide ongoing support and monitoring of the arrangement
  • assist householders to find new home-sharers when any partnership comes to an end
