Living in Networked Communities (LINC)

Are you an adult aged 18 to 65 with a disability?

Would you like to live in a supported community but maintain your independence?

LINC communities allow residents to live independent, active lives while building new relationships in your community. LINC properties are generally within close proximity to each other, but sufficiently dispersed to promote independence. Our LINC Support Coordinators provide ‘friendly neighbour’ support to the LINC members and facilitate social and educational gatherings with neighbours to promote friendships, peer support and the developments of new networks.

 

LINC is only available to NDIS participants. For enquiries call us on 6163 7600
