Specialist Disability Accommodation

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 explores what Victoria’s new Disability Services Safeguards Bill will mean for the rights of SDA tenants.
This review presents an incredibly rare opportunity to influence SDA pricing policy. Now is the time to make your voice heard, writes Brent Woolgar.
The recent release of the Q&S rules have important implications for SDA providers, writes Brent Woolgar.
SDA without a comparable Supported Independent Living (SIL) policy is useless, it cannot service the needs of people with disabilities. But, as Brent explains, they are currently not sufficiently linked in policy or practice, potentially having serious consequences for participant's rights.
