Independent Living Program
The Independent Living Program is a specialist housing service that provides low cost rental housing for adults with chronic and complex mental health challenges who can independently access local mental health services.
To be eligible for the Independent Living Program, tenants must be receiving support from a clinical team, GP or private psychiatrist and be capable of living independently in the community with support in place.
We manage 75 Independent Living Program properties and support ILP tenants to maintain their tenancies and work towards recovery using a supportive landlord model.
