These homes come with features like wider doorways, customised bathrooms, and emergency call systems. SDA aims to help residents live more independently and comfortably.
How do I know if I'm eligible for SDA?
Eligibility for SDA is determined by the NDIS based on certain criteria, including the level of your functional impairment and the support you need. It’s best to check your NDIS plan or discuss with your planner if SDA is included as part of your supports.
Can I choose where I want to live with SDA housing?
Yes, SDA gives you the freedom to choose where you live. You can select a home that suits your lifestyle and is close to your community, friends, and family. It’s all about finding the right place for you.

A good SDA provider will listen to your needs, offer properties that meet the SDA design standard, and support your independence. They should be open and transparent about tenancy agreements and ensure the dwelling is well-maintained.
