Building or buying your own SDA

Cover of 'Building or buying your own SDA' Document

We have just launched a brand new guide for people who are wanting to use their Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) funding to build or buy a home, or for family members looking to provide a home for a loved one.

For people who want to be their own SDA provider, there are quite a few hurdles to overcome.

This guide will help you work out if it might be right for you.

Kicking goals

Building the right home in the right location doesn't just put a roof over someone's head – it can be a springboard the person needs for achieving their goals.

In this great new article on the Housing Hub, Rebecca explains how her sporting connections led her to her new home. Now, her new home is helping her fully commit to her sporting goals.

Webinar: Understanding Improved Livability SDA

'Improved Liveability' is a type of Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA). If you have a sensory, intellectual or cognitive impairment, then Improved Liveability SDA might be right for you.

Learn about Improved Liveability SDA
at this free webinar for NDIS participants, their families, support coordinators and other disability sector professionals on 31 August.

Have your say about living in SDA

If you have moved into a Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) home in the past 6 months, or you have been given an offer of an SDA home, the Summer Foundation's research team would like to hear from you.

They want to better understand the individual experiences and outcomes of people with disability who move into SDA. The project involves collecting information from SDA tenants around the time of moving in and at regular intervals up to 3 years post-move.
