This workshop 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. This workshop is designed for organisations and individuals thinking about developing housing in the NDIS and will cover the Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) framework, including the SDA Rule & Registration Requirements and pricing and payments.
It will also cover emerging SDA business models, such as matching NDIS housing demand with supply and approaches to redeveloping existing stock. The workshop will also touch on the implementation and delivery processes for SDA, including risk management.
Brent is a bona fide master of Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) detail, which considering he is an engineer is not surprising. Brent has built his reputation as one of the sector's leading experts in SDA with involvement in over 50 SDA related projects to date, ranging from parent groups, small organisations, large national organisations, state governments, community housing providers, for-profit investors, developers and many financial institutions. What Brent doesn’t know about SDA is probably the stuff the NDIA don’t know themselves yet.
Brent brings a unique skill set to NDIS Housing, with over 25 years consulting experience in accessible design as well as a lived experience as the proud father of teenage identical twins, one of whom has cerebral palsy.
Brent is a Subject Matter Specialist in SDA & SIL.

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.
