A partnership with Monash University's Art, Design and Architecture studio (MADA), the booklet showcases international and Australian examples of housing that delivers community connection for people of all abilities.
The emerging National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) demands new thinking on how housing and support services are conceived, designed and delivered.
The introduction of the National Disability Insurance Scheme means that the segregated approaches previously used by the States, the Territories and the disability service sector to plan, fund, allocate and deliver disability support services, are now on the verge of redundancy.
A more outward looking and inclusive policy framework is required that is not only consistent with the objectives of the NDIS, but can also deliver practically on the National Disability Strategy.
Shaping the Future Today contains Australian and International examples of housing developments that use urban and precinct design to deliver community connection opportunities for people of all abilities.
