Fighting Chance believes that people with disability should have unrestricted access to homes, not just houses.

Homes where residents are supported to live full and enriching lives on their terms.

Fighting Chance’s new accommodation enterprise puts people with disability and their families at the forefront of choice about how accommodation services are delivered. Set to expand rapidly over the next few years, our innovative model of supported independent living focuses on a person-centred, family governance model.
