Ability Housings’ aim is to create accessible and enabling environments that support people living with a disability to achieving a connected and fulfilling life at home and within the community.

This aim has directed us to identify desirableness locations for boutique SDA housing developments within 7km of Perth or 1km of major regional centres. We aim to offer long term secure homes, where you can live as long as you desire.

Our accessible and ‘smart’ boutique homes are in connected, safe, urban communities ensuring you can create the home and lifestyle you desire.

Our governing team combines a unique professional skill mix and experience in disability services, healthcare, customer service and business management to SDA and accessible housing projects. This ensures we are a well-informed provider of specialised boutique housing with a deep understanding of the types of challenges that people living with complex disability can experience. We have a specific interest in providing a housing solution for younger people currently living in residential aged care and desiring a more appropriate home and community in which to live.

What is SDA
