Improved Liveability Specialist Disability Accommodation - what it is, how you get this funded and what you need to know.

The Housing Hub team is passionate about giving people with disability the knowledge they need so they can find the home that is right. With the NDIS there are new choices. Our team includes staff with lived experience who will share their expertise.

Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) is a house, apartment, or other types of home that has been designed for people who need a lot of support. The NDIS pays for people to live in SDA.

SDA includes special features that help people live as independently as possible.

If you have a sensory, intellectual or cognitive impairment then Improved Liveability SDA might be for you.

This webinar is for NDIS participants, their families, support coordinators and other disability sector professionals.

The events will cover

  • Housing options under the NDIS 
  • Support models and stories from people with disability
  • SDA eligibility and understanding housing preferences
  • Preview of the Housing Hub - how can it support you

The time of the event will depend on where you live. Click “register here” to find out what time the event will be in your state.
