Ensuring Accessibility: Finding Your Home with Specialist Disability Accommodation

Accessible housing that accommodates the disability needs of people is crucial in helping individuals to live more independently and to reduce the safety risks of living on their own. Anyone who is searching for living options knows how difficult it can be to find a house, let alone a specialised accommodation. But the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) has implemented a funded support called Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) to provide a wide range of specially designed housing for people with disabilities.

Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) is intended for NDIS participants with extreme functional impairments and those who require one-on-one support to complete their daily personal activities. Such participants with higher support needs can improve their living and functional capacity by accessing SDA combined with other NDIS supports. These custom houses ensure smooth delivery of all the other NDIS supports and services of the participants. Usually, Specialist Disability Accommodation is shared with other participants who have similar needs with each person having their own private room in the same house. It is also possible for participants to live alone with shared onsite support. That means a number
of participants will have a home of their own at the same site with shared supports for their assistance. You can contact a Specialist Disability Accommodation service provider to know which option best suits your needs. Though SDA is funded by the NDIS, it is paid to the providers for the house and its maintenance. Participants will have to cover ordinary costs like rent and utility bills.
