Every Australian deserves the choice to have a home of their own

The issue of a severe lack of appropriate housing and accommodation options for people with intellectual disability, and the consequential impact of ageing parents who continue to provide care for their sons and daughters living with an intellectual disability is escalating at an alarming rate.

Please read here an open letter to Minister Dan Tehan from Justin Nix, Director, Equitable Access Solutions who wrote this letter to the Disability Reform Council (DRC) in support of Ms Marie Hell, who represents a very large cohort of ageing parents throughout Australia with adult sons and daughters living with an intellectual disability.

He also wrote this as a professional with 28 years’ experience in the public and private housing and disability sectors. Much of his work is committed to working with this cohort of people to facilitate housing outcomes and specialising in the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) framework.
