This systematic review aimed to describe the characteristics of different models of supported accommodation provided to people with traumatic brain injury (TBI) and to assess the effects of these models on outcomes. Models of supported accommodation were included in this review if they were available to people with TBI over 18 years of age; included both housing and support provided by a service system; and offered permanent, long term accommodation in a community-based setting. Accommodation based in institutional settings, such as residential aged care or secure neuropsychiatric facilities, was excluded. The search identified 4,127 records and 376 articles were retrieved in full text. Sixty-eight articles described models of supported accommodation, including six articles that assessed the effects of supported accommodation on client outcomes.
