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.
Once upon a time Australia built a disjointed, complex railway system that would haunt it for years to come. Today, Brent Woolgar writes, we are in danger of making the same mistake with SDA.
The NDIA recently updated the Specialist Disability Accommodation Price Guide, increasing both New Build and Existing Stock prices by 2.1%.

Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) is a complicated beast. Our NDIS Housing experts have produced a checklist with the key actions that organisations should be taking at 5 stages along the SDA journey.
New information out from the NDIA this week contains an unexpected (and unhappy) surprise for NSW SDA providers and confirms that SDA is ploughing ahead in Victoria and other states. Brent Woolgar explores the detail.
After much deliberation by governments, the NDIS Specialist Disability Accommodation Rule has been made public. Luke Bo'sher outlines the key points of this long awaited piece of policy.
