This study investigated the interconnections between housing, community infrastructure and quality of life for Indigenous people living with disability. It incorporated three case studies from Yalata and Point Pearce in South Australia and Greater Geelong in Victoria that revealed poor health and disability are major issues facing the Indigenous populations in these areas. The research highlights the need for specialist facilities for Indigenous people with disability designed and built in consultation with the local community and stakeholders, and that the NDIS understand and account for the challenges facing Indigenous people with disability.
