Fighting Chance believes that people with disabilities should have unrestricted access to homes, not just houses. Homes where housemates and families choose who supports them, how they want support and when they want support. Homes that are welcoming and don’t feel like workplaces or institutions. Homes where residents are supported to live full and enriching lives on their terms.
Fighting Chance’s new accommodation enterprise puts people with disabilities 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. At the core of this is the Family Governance Committee who collaborate with their team to ensure that true choice and control are prioritised for all housemates.
