You will require this registration if you operate a supported residential service. A supported residential service (SRS) is a facility where accommodation and personal support are provided to residents who need support in everyday life (such as people who are frail or disabled).
SRS facilities are privately operated services that are run on a commercial basis, and do not receive government funding. Your registration will specify the number of beds you are authorised to provide, and the number of people you are authorised to accommodate.
A registered facility cannot be altered or extended without the approval of the Agency.
If you, or one of the directors of your organisation, will not be able to direct the day-to-day operation of the service at any time, you must employ a person to manage the service. You must apply to the Agency for approval within 7 days of appointing a person as manager.
