NDIS SUBJECT MATTER SPECIALISTS
DSC's Subject Matter Specialists are sector leaders in their fields.
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.
Brent Woolgar analyses the new respite pricing structure to see if the numbers stack up.
