How do I get accommodation for my Son/Daughter?
If you have resources allocated to your daughter/son please feel free to contact Leveda to discuss how Leveda may be able to support your son or daughter. Alternatively if you are developing a plan for your son/daughter and wish to know what Leveda can provide and the cost of support please feel free to contact us.
For existing Leveda Accommodation Support Services the majority of services are funded by the Office of Disability and Client Services (ODACS). As a result if Leveda has a vacancy we are required to inform Disability SA and work with Disability SA to identify who will receive the service. Disability SA has a comprehensive waiting list and the vacancy will be allocated to the person who is in urgent need of accommodation and whose support needs are best met by the vacancy.
If you are looking for accommodation support it is important that your son/daughter is registered with Disability SA and you keep Disability SA informed of any changes in your circumstances which will impact on the ongoing support of your daughter/son such as deterioration in the health of a primary carer.
I need more Respite, can Leveda help?
Respite & In Home Support
Respite enables an unpaid carer, usually a family member, to have a break from their caring role, whilst their family member with a disability is supported at our respite service. We also provide Intensive In-home Support as an alternative to our centre based respite service.
Community Support Services
Leveda provides a range of support packages to individuals with a disability and their family. This includes drop in support, help to learn a new skill, respite and recreation and can occur both in the home and out of the home. Contracts vary from a few hours to 24 hour support. Some packages are provided in an emergency to assist a person with a disability in a crisis situation.

We operate 24 hours per day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
