The Crisis and Care Accommodation industry caters for some of the most economically vulnerable people in Australian society, including children, those with long-term disabilities and the elderly. According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, over 4.0 million Australians (or 18.5% of the population) had some form of disability in 2012, although the number of people accessing accommodation support and respite services is considerably lower (with roughly 44,000 accessing accommodation support services and 38,000 using respite services).
The Crisis and Care Accommodation industry provides residential care accommodation (except aged care) combined with nursing, supervisory or other types of care as required (including medical).
