For the past 35 years, Link Wentworth has provided safe, secure and affordable housing for people with a disability.
We currently provide tenancy and property management for around 300 tenancies, which includes Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA), SDA Respite and non-SDA group homes. Our disability housing has been designed and developed to cater for people living with physical, mental health and sensory disability issues.
Together with our partners, we pair housing with a range of disability support services to help our residents with a disability pursue fulfilling and independent lives.
What Link Wentworth does differently
Link Wentworth has an extensive range of housing options available for people with a disability. Drawing on our decades of experience in the sector, we ensure accommodation is tailored to the needs and requirements of each resident’s particular circumstances.
We are committed to the NDIS principles and objectives, and believe that people with a disability should:
- Be supported to participate in and contribute to social and economic life to the extent of their ability.
- Be able to exercise choice in the pursuit of their goals, and the planning and delivery of their supports.
- Receive reasonable and necessary supports, including early intervention supports.
- Receive supports outside of the NDIS, and be assisted to coordinate these supports in tandem with the NDIS.
We provide our residents with accommodation that fosters a sense of independence, choice and an ability to participate with a broader community, while also having their own space.
The Link Wentworth community is vibrant and inclusive, and we ensure our residents living with a disability have access to the same services as everybody else. This includes:
- Access to high-quality assistance via our Customer Experience Team, available Monday to Friday from 9am to 5pm, in addition to our Disability Team.
- Invitations to community engagement events and activities. Many of our Disability Housing tenants have attended past events, including being involved with our art exhibition.
- Receiving the resident newsletter and regular communications to ensure all tenants are kept up-to-date with important information and the community.
- Access to high quality end-to-end property management, including repairs and maintenance.
Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA)
Link Wentworth’s Disability Housing services are mostly Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA). SDA refers to homes designed for people with high support needs. It doesn’t include disability support services but often, these services are delivered in SDA homes.
SDA properties may include special designs for people with very high support needs. The properties may also have speciﬁc location requirements or features that help our residents maintain independent living.
Supported Independent Living (SIL)
We work in partnership with established Supported Independent Living (SIL) providers to deliver appropriate and long-term housing to people with SDA funding.
Supported Independent Living, or SIL, refers to the support a person living with a disability receives in their home so they can live as independently as possible. This can include help with tasks and/or help developing general skills.
SIL is offered to people living with a disability, regardless of whether they own their home or live in Specialist Disability Accommodation. It is also available to people living in a shared arrangement.
We are registered as a Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) provider under the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). We meet the NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission guidelines.
Link Wentworth has Tier-1 status with the national community housing regulator.
