Accommodation Services Transition Project
The current State Government made a pre-election commitment to consider whether to proceed with the transition of government accommodation services to non-government providers. The Government’s decision was that individuals who had not formally advised the Department of Communities of their preferred service provider before the election may continue to receive support from the Department. The Accommodation Transition Project has now concluded.
Individuals who have transitioned, or are in the process of transitioning, to a non-government provider will continue being supported through the non-government sector. The aspiration for the delivery of Communities in WA is that all people with disability have choice and control about the services they receive.
The Transition Project resulted in 285 people in 49 group homes transitioning from Communities to non-government service providers.
