NDIS Housing

The Missing Piece

After two years of waiting, we finally have all the pieces of the NDIS Housing puzzle. It all started on 1 July, now it’s time to work with our NDIS Housing experts to move beyond the overview and plan how you are going to respond to this huge housing funding opportunity.

We will dive with you into the complex detail to work out just how your organisation can be a serious player in NDIS housing.


Who should attend?

  • CEOs
  • Senior Managers
  • Policy Analysts
  • Disability Support Providers
  • Community Housing Providers
  • Developers
  • Architects and Designers
  • Housing Finance Organisations





From 1 July 2016, people with disability will have housing vouchers they can spend on new and existing housing. Between 500-900 properties are expected to be built every year for the next 8 years. This workshop will detail how this new funding stream will operate. We will work through the detail of how the NDIS’ Specialist Disability Accommodation payments work and examine how lenders are approaching lending. The workshop will identify the housing development opportunities, likely demand issues and cash flow risks. The workshop will also look at how housing providers and support providers will develop relationships in this new world of funding.

FEEDBACK FOR DSC's NDIS Housing forums

Don't just take our word for it. Over 1,500 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!
