Collection: Understanding & Achieving Success in the Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) Market


A comprehensive guide for SDA housing providers and investors alike, offering insights on entering, navigating, and expanding their share in the Supported Disability Accommodation (SDA) market.

Course Overview

The Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) sector of the housing market is rapidly developing and is expected to forecast to become a $10 billion sector by 2030. Thousands of homes are needed for people living with extreme functional impairment or very high support needs. These homes allow a person the chance to have their own space, be part of the community, and live an independent fulfilling life.
This program will take you step by step through the process of becoming an investor or SDA provider in this section. We’ll dissect the various living choices for individuals with disabilities, outline the legal obligations for both the provider and the participant, discuss construction specifics and ideal locations with example costings, explore the range of available technologies and how to integrate them into the best designs to appeal to NDIS participants for residence in your properties.
The course will also discuss the opportunities to enhance service delivery offerings by using assistive technologies in the SDA service environment.
