The Chair and CEO are pleased to report on the achievements, progress and challenges faced by Active Community Housing Ltd in 2016-17.
2016-17 has been a year of evolution and change for Active. Active was developed by the Victorian disability sector in 1998 to provide high quality housing and related services to people with disabilities. Traditionally we have provided long term community housing, rooming houses and Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) with each dwelling linked to a community support partner.
The introduction of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a transformational change in the way services, including specialised housing services will be delivered to people with disabilities across Australia. The Active board and management team have taken strategic decisions in 2016-17 to expand the services we will offer to our client group. Our objective is to deliver more services and capture the opportunities that will become available through the NDIS in 2017-18 and beyond.
