Active Community Housing has worked exclusively in the disability sector for almost 20 years. We partner with architects, builders and trades across Victoria. Active’s 270 trades and suppliers have demonstrated experience in providing quality housing modifications and upgrades for people with disabilities and their families as well as community disability and housing organisations.
Active provides a one stop home modifications service starting with a full on-site assessment, followed by project management and coordination of trades and installation of the required modifications.
Active is a keen advocate for the use of home automation and assistive technologies within the home modification space. Home automation, assistive technologies and communications infrastructures linked to appropriate, user friendly interface devices have the ability to vastly improve a person’s independence and dignity. These improvements can lessen the need for on-site resources.
Through continual research, application and post review, Active maintains a broad, up to date and practical understanding of bespoke solutions that aid a person to live a normal life in their own.
