Book a screening assessment for assisted boarding housing

If you work in the social support or mental health sector, you may have clients seeking accommodation through an assisted boarding house. Using the Australian Government’s Screening Tool for Entry to Assisted Boarding, our friendly customer care team can assess your client’s support needs to determine if this accommodation is suitable for them. All new residents of assisted boarding houses must be assessed using this screening tool. You can view more information about the screening process for assisted boarding houses in this information sheet.

NDIS Planning Tool

Knowing your support needs and goals are important first steps in preparing for your NDIS plan. Our NDIS Planning Tool is designed to make it easier for you to outline the things that are essential to your daily life and ensure that your NDIS plan helps you to achieve your future goals.

You may like to use the tool on your own, with a family member, a friend or with an Australian Unity team member. Get in contact with one of our team members to organise a one-on-one chat.
