Hospital to Home (H2H) program

What we provide

Our Hospital to Home Program has been specifically designed to support people with disability who are currently stuck in hospital (even though they have no medical need to be there) to move into a homely environment.

It provides a mechanism for someone to live in temporary accommodation while their permanent supports and/or accommodation are being arranged following a hospital admission, rather than having to wait in hospital while this is arranged. This is a much better environment to live in while awaiting permanent supports.

Medium-Term Accommodation (MTA)

We’re now offering Medium-Term Accommodation (MTA) supports at our Box Hill and Glenroy homes! If you have MTA funded in your NDIS plan and need a place to live while you wait for your permanent home, we can help you.

Our expertise in supporting people to live independently

We currently support close to 300 individuals across more than 60 houses living in permanent Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA). 

Our Hospital to Home Program homes are located in Cheltenham, Glenroy and Box Hill in Melbourne. They are large and comfortable 4-bedroom homes. Our goal is to make you feel like you are at home as much as possible. Our staff will work with you to understand what supports you need and how you like to be supported – both in the home and in the community.
