Summary This paper aims to identify current practice responses to the housing and support needs of people with high, complex or changing support needs. Case studies of current housing dilemmas and responses were provided by Annecto and Scope (Vic), and included data about the responses of other providers known to these agencies. The paper will first present case study data in three categories of accommodation: living independently (ie. living alone in self-rented or self-owned housing with or without formal support); living without a home (ie. living in non permanent or non secure housing); and living in the parental home and planning for change. The case studies are followed by a discussion of the key response strategies evident in each, and an analysis of significant ‘lessons’ for policy.
