What is SDA?

Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) is a type of NDIS housing designed for people who require specialist housing solutions. This allows people with complex care need the freedom to live in a purpose-built, accessible home that is tailored to their specific need.

How is SDA different from a normal home?

SDA is entirely accessible and built with features such as ceiling hoists, home automation, and assistive technology. More importantly, our SDA homes are managed by experienced staff who are accredited and trained to provide complex supports.

Is SDA right for me?

You may be suitable for SDA if you have high support needs or extreme functional impairment. Extreme functional impairment means you may have a difficult time completing personal tasks, taking care of yourself or moving around on your own. Similarly, if you have high support needs, it means you require a lot of person-top-person specialist support.
