Specialised housing that is designed to accommodate the needs of people with disabilities is important in building a truly inclusive society. People with higher support needs can lead an independent life with the help of smart design which ensures ease of access and smooth delivery of various supports and services.
Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) is an NDIS-funded support that helps people with disabilities to live in such customised houses. The SDA funding is for the building itself and does not include the
disability-related supports and services that the NDIS participants may need. Also, the rent and personal living expenses are not included in the SDA funding.
Specialist Disability Accommodation is meant for people with severe functional impairment and higher support needs. Also, it is intended to work together with other funded supports and services of the participants. To be eligible for the SDA, the participant has to meet the ‘reasonable and necessary’ funding criteria under the NDIS Act. The NDIS may ask you to submit evidence to prove your higher support needs before making their decision.
