Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA)

If you have high support needs, you may be able to access a wide range of properties through Specialist Disability Accommodation.

What is Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA)?

Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) is NDIS funding for people with very high needs who need specialist housing.

While Supported Independent Living (SIL) funds cover support in your home from someone like your Support Worker, SDA funds the physical home in which your services happen.

What type of properties can I live in?

If you have high support needs, you can access a wide range of SDA properties.

All SDA homes have been carefully designed with your accessibility, comfort and care in mind. This includes accessible features to help you live more independently and have better access to supports in your own home.

In some cases, you can even use your SDA funding to purchase a new home!

Who will I be living with?

For some SDA homes, you may be sharing with a few people. While others you’ll be able to live on your own. Get in touch to find out more.


NDIS Support Categories

Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) will be funded separately to Supported Independent Living in your NDIS plan, as a Capital Support.

Please note: We bill in line with the NDIS Price Guide, which generally increases annually.
