We welcome you to the website of Manningham Inclusive Community Housing (MICH Inc).  In June 2014 a concerned group of parents and community member met to discuss the lack of accessible accommodation options available to people with an intellectual disability that live in Manningham.

Why we exist

Our research and practical experience confirmed that there is strong evidence that the accommodation needs of people with a disability, who live in Manningham, are not being met. There are no opportunities for accessible accommodation available to them that give them the same choice as that of a typical citizen. Choice as to where they live, with whom they live, and in a place that makes sense to them.

It’s not just about a house

We believe that a home is not just the house in which you live, and the people with whom you choose to live, but is also the community in which you have chosen to live.  A sense of belonging can be found when home is in a broad community where you find ongoing connection to people and places, where you are able to participate and contribute to that community.
