This report reviews a person-centred approach to securing private housing for people with disability. This approach required mapping the context and identifying the structural elements impeding attempts to implement a person-centred approach and access to housing in the private market for people with disability. The study also explored the implications for access to and the design and provision of private housing for people with disability. The research establishes the basis for ongoing housing and disability research.

Recommendations inform person-centred models, individualised support and self-directed funding approaches. Recommendations are made for government, housing industry, people with disability, families, support networks and advocates, community organisations and researchers.
