The vision of our Strategy is to facilitate access for people with disabilities to the appropriate range of housing and related support services, delivered in an integrated and sustainable manner. This promotes equality of opportunity, individual choice and independent living. It is expected that while acknowledging the challenges, this should be achieved within the mainstream housing environment.
The core goal of our Strategy is to meet the identified housing needs of people with disabilities locally whether they are currently living in the community and or in a congregated setting.

The four categories of disability referred to in the Strategy are:
(a) sensory disability.
(b) mental health disability.
(c) physical disability.
(d) intellectual disability.
