What We Do
We are a provider of long-term Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) for NDIS participants.
A profit for purpose organisation that delivers more choice and control in housing to people with disability. We provide Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) designed for our tenants’ lifestyle needs and we relentlessly raise expectations and standards of living for people with disabilities in choosing where they call home.
We are involved at every step: from the first encounter to guiding the participants along their SDA journey until they successfully move to their new home and beyond.
To redefine disability as the barriers created by society.
We seek to put the responsibility on society to adapt for people living with disability. We will achieve this through increasing the standard of housing options for people with disability.
That we no longer need to exist, as all people with disability and complex care needs have the opportunity to live in high quality housing that supports independence and inclusion, enhancing individual health and wellbeing.
Liverty Housing Impact Report
This report provides an overview of the impact we have on the lives of our tenants and on the broader community over the past six years. The report also summarises the significant contribution that Liverty Housing has made to the Australian SDA market, and to improving the lives of people with disability.
We commit to reporting annually in a clear and honest manner so that our tenants, partners, investors and staff can all see what we are doing well, and where we can improve.
Liverty Housing has a unique position as one of the pioneers in the Specialist Disability Accomodation (SDA) sector. In 2006, seven years prior to the creation of the National Disability Insurance Scheme, Summer Foundation demonstrated success in minimising the need for younger people with high levels of disability to go into aged care facilities.
As part of their work, Summer Foundation commissioned two housing demonstration projects for younger people with disability. Beginning with two apartments in Abbotsford, Victoria in 2013, the Summer Foundation replicated this success in 2016 with 10 more apartments in the Hunter region of NSW.
From these successes, Summer Housing was born. Its aim would be to uphold the
Summer Foundation’s mission whilst continuing to innovate and guide policy around Specialist Disability Accommodation.
In September 2023, Summer Housing changed its name to Liverty Housing. Liverty Housing has achieved its initial goal to commission 380 additional dwellings for people with disability. It now has homes in major cities across Australia including Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Gold Coast, Adelaide, Canberra and Perth.
Our expertise in this space has earned Liverty Housing the position of a trusted sector leader. We continue to refine approaches to the design and technology of our housing to enable high-quality living, independence and community inclusion. Our aim is to ensure accessibility of our housing to the community, so that we may continue to improve the quality of life for people living with disability.
Today, our model has moved to partnering with investors to build life-changing living. We serve our tenants through managing specialist housing designed for people with disability, ensuring choice and control and the dignity of taking risks are upheld at all times.
