Daily Living Support

Challenge Disability Services offers two types of living support: group accommodation and independent living.

If you’re not sure which is the right choice for you or your loved one, talk to us about your needs. Our experienced and qualified staff can help you find the right support at the right time.

Helping you live independently

If you are able to look after yourself but need some extra help, the Challenge Disability Services independent living services can make it possible.

Independent living means you stay in your own accommodation. A Challenge Disability Services team member will visit you in your home for several hours each week, depending on how much support you need.

Our qualified and friendly staff can help you with:

  • Daily living activities like cooking, cleaning, gardening, public transport and so much more.
  • Making new friends
  • Learning how to stay safe at home.
Am I eligible for independent living services?

We provide support for people with low and high needs. To be eligible for Challenge independent living services you need to be:

  • Aged between 16 and 65
  • Live in your own accommodation (not supported accommodation)
  • Have access to other supports in your community
  • Need more than 15 hours per week of personal assistance to complete daily living activities
  • Have NDIS funding or we can help you obtain it

If you are aged between 18 and 65 and have an intellectual disability or you have suffered a brain injury you can join one of our community activities. We can also help you with managing your money and budgeting.

To find out how we can help you live independently, contact us.

Apart from our other locations, Challenge Disability Services has drop-in accommodation support services in Wee-Waa, Narrabri, Moree and Mungindi, NSW.

About Challenge Community Services

60 years ago we were a small band of parents and friends seeking support services for our children with disabilities. Today, Challenge has grown to be one of the largest community support services in New South Wales. We provide support to over 2500 people from Albury to Lismore, Sydney, Dubbo, Tamworth and beyond. With over 600 staff, 85 of which have a disability, we strive to comply with and exceed all standards required under State and Federal Acts.
In the spirit of Reconciliation, Challenge Community Services acknowledges Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the Traditional Owners and Custodians of this country, and their connection to land, water and community. We pay our respect to them, their cultures and customs, and to Elders both past and present.
