Independent Living Program

Through our Independent Living Program, we provide supported housing for people with severe and persistent mental illness to help them live independently in the community.

In partnership with six metropolitan Community Mental Health Clinics, we help people engage with their community, work towards their recovery and remain in safe, secure housing.

UnitingCare West’s supported housing model provides stable, long term transitional accommodation across more than 221 properties in Perth’s Northern suburbs.

Who is the Program for?

The Independent Living Program is designed for people who have a severe mental illness that affects their opportunity to maintain stable accommodation. Potential tenants need to be engaged with clinical mental health support and require support to help sustain housing tenancy.
