How We're Different
CIM Supports specialise in Individual Living Options and community access and inclusion. Our passion for housing and supports has allowed us to develop strong networks with local real estate agents to assist with finding suitable private housing options for NDIS participants. We are aslo different as our other company C&M Property Partners specilises in property buying for the disability sector for property invetsors supporting other disabilty organsiatiions also with housing options.
This is why we are different. We are focused on housing options and individual or shared living arrangements.
