Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA)

Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) encompasses various housing options specifically crafted for individuals facing severe functional impairments or requiring extensive support.

These dwellings incorporate accessible features that empower residents to live with increased independence, facilitating more effective and secure delivery of additional support services.

What is Specialist Disability Accommodation

Individuals with significant support requirements due to their disability may necessitate residence in a specifically designed home. This type of housing is referred to as Specialist Disability Accommodation.

Various forms of home and living support are available to cater to diverse individuals. Specialist disability accommodation is just one among numerous support options. It’s possible that other home and living alternatives could better align with your specific needs and preferences.

Living Independently in Specialist Disability Accommodation

Living independently in specialist disability accommodation may be possible if it aligns with your specific disability-related support requirements and circumstances. Specialist disability accommodation might include a communal residence with a limited number of occupants, each having their private bedroom. If desired, you have the option to share your bedroom with others, such as a partner.

What is the difference between SIL and SDA?

SIL promotes independence and freedom, enabling you to experience self-sufficient living with necessary support. Conversely, SDA delivers highly complex support to individuals facing significant functional impairments. If you possess an NDIS plan, you may qualify for funding for either of these options.
