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:

Very efficient information presentation. I also really appreciated your sharing of the attendee list and posting the presentations from your workshops. So much information in government-related programs gets privatised: I think your generous sharing is admirable.
Luke is outstanding at explaining a confused and confusing system in an understandable and accessible way.
The very informative and useful NDIS updates that were delivered by the best and most articulate consultants in the disability sector!
