About Project Independence

Objectives

The objectives of the organisation are:

  • To provide accommodation options for persons with intellectual disabilities that support transitions to independence, through upholding their dignity and building their confidence. This will be done through sourcing, developing and managing residential properties which typify living arrangements for people who do not have disabilities
  • To provide adequate individualised supports that promote continuous growth enabling ownership by residents of the accommodation
  • To provide a person centred model of housing development which encourages freedom of choice and engages the residents in developing joint activities, their own rules and a sense of commitment and community
  • To help grow ownership of accommodation by intellectually disabled residents to provide a pathway to future independent housing options
  • As a social business to engage with other like-minded organisations, such as Governments, business or not-for-profit organisations, to develop future housing options for the intellectually disabled, as long as they meet the other objectives of the organisation
  • To cooperate with other organisations in the furtherance of these objectives
