The NDIS’ Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) program is accelerating with dozens of organisations developing new housing across the country.
The 2017 DSC SDA Masterclass is designed for organisations and individuals planning to develop housing in the NDIS. The Masterclass will provide a solid grounding in the intricacies of SDA as they now stand as well as providing insight into some of the missing pieces, including:
SDA Rule & Registration Requirements
- Changes from the Decision Paper
- Implications of registration requirements for providers
- Pricing and Payments
Emerging SDA Business Models
- Matching Demand with Housing Supply and Design
- Access to finance for SDA projects
- Approach to redevelopment of existing stock
- Private and not for profits in partnership to deliver housing
- Head Leasing Separation of Housing and Supports
SDA Delivery Considerations
- Delivery Process
- NDIS Registration, LHA, Certification Risks
- Vacancy Risks and Mitigation
Case Studies of private-NFP partnerships and apartment developments.
The workshop will also walk through the start-to-finish checklist that DSC has developed for SDA projects.
There has been a tremendous amount of activity within the Specialist Disability Accommodation market so far in 2017 with the publishing of the SDA Rule and updated Guide to Suitability, Price Guide and Terms of Business. All of which changes to some extent what we used to know about SDA and the practicality of how to deliver SDA on the ground ready for participants to occupy. There also remains some important missing pieces to the puzzle such as coordination of supply and demand and SDA Provider and SIL provider separation.
FEEDBACK FOR DSC's NDIS Housing forums
Don't just take our word for it. Over 2,000 people have now attended a DSC NDIS workshop. Here's what previous NDIS Housing participants had to say about the day:
In this technical SDA article, Brent Woolgar explores what SDA classification is all about and its implications for SDA delivery.
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%.
Despite the recent flurry of activity in the SDA space, there remains a critical missing piece of the puzzle, writes Brent Woolgar.
Over the last few weeks we have learned a lot about some State Governments positions regarding their existing stock of social and disability housing. This is vital information if you are considering investment in SDA.
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.
