Improved Living Arrangements

We can provide support with accommodation or tenancy through Your Home Canberra (YHC). Feeling safe and being comfortable in your home is a priority for us. We can provide support to help you get and keep accommodation that is right for you. Your Home Canberra is a part of Focus but is a separate, independent department with its own management team.

You do not have to choose Focus for your other services if you are living in accommodation managed by YHC. If you are an NDIS participant and have been approved for the support category ‘improved living arrangements’ in your NDIS plan, you can access the supports below:

Accommodation / tenancy assistance
