Families accommodation action group: $3M NSW Government funding

Minister for Disability Services, Andrew Constance, has announced $3 million in capital funding to St George Community Housing for the innovative Sutherland Shire Disability Accommodation Action Group (SSDAAG) pilot project.
"This project is an excellent example of how families, non-government organisations and government can all work together to get the best outcomes for people with disability," Mr Constance said.
"This capital funding grant will go towards providing accommodation options for people with disability in the Sutherland Shire."
Since June 2011, the NSW Government has been working with representatives from SSDAAG and non-government providers in the Sutherland Shire to trial person-centred approaches to planning and budgeting for 18 identified families. Under the project, individualised packages can be pooled to establish a sustainable accommodation setting of families' choosing.
