NDIS: most people will not get housing support

Issue 

A disability working group said at least 45,000 people with disabilities will remain in unsatisfactory housing, including nursing homes, living with aging parents and homelessness under the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).

While the key aim of the NDIS is to provide participants with independent living, most of the people with disabilities will not receive housing support.

Housing experts believe 110,000 people need appropriate accommodation, meaning about 40% will miss out on the help they need.
