* The Victorian Government last year transferred 547 disability residential homes and staff to five non- government providers which represents approximately 43 per cent of the accommodation market. Residents in these homes are NDIS clients, and these residential services are currently funded as part of Victoria’s annual $2.5 billion contribution to the NDIS. These homes are scheduled to be transferred to the NDIS by the end of the year.

The total number of people receiving disability accommodation/respite services in Victoria is approximately 6,500.
