FEEDBACK FOR DSC's NDIS Housing forums
Don't just take our word for it. Over 2,500 people have now attended a DSC NDIS workshop. Here's what previous NDIS Housing participants had to say about the day:
For too long, the SDA has been a complicated enigma for the sector. Kylie Morgan unpacks the Summer Foundation and PricewaterhouseCoopers' new and critical report and shares her four key take home messages.
They say money makes the world go round, so who will finance the SDA? In this article, Luke Bo'sher looks into where $5 billion in investment is likely to come from.
With 28,000 NDIS participants expected to receive SDA funding, the demand for properties is set to skyrocket. Luke Bo'sher examines the bricks and mortar of what is being built and who it is for.
