A supported accommodation residenceThe NSW HIV Supported Accommodation Program provides places for residents of NSW who have HIV and are unable to live independently in the community, or who require some level of support with daily living.

Eligi​​bility

As a minimum, for a person to be eligible for supported accommodation they must:

  • be a resident within NSW
  • be infected with HIV
  • have a cognitive or physical impairment which precludes them from living independently or have multiple needs directly related to their HIV infection which prevents independent living.

HIV must be the significant factor for the person’s inability to live independently and support must be required to perform tasks of daily living.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
