Specialised Disability Accommodation (SDA) refers to housing that is specifically designed to meet the needs of people with significant and permanent disabilities who require specialized housing solutions. SDA is funded under the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) and is intended to provide safe and comfortable living arrangements for people with complex care needs.

SDA properties are built or modified to incorporate specific features that support accessibility, mobility, and independent living for people with disabilities. These features may include things like specialized bathroom facilities, wider doorways, ramps, hoists, and other assistive technologies. SDA can be provided in a range of settings, including group homes, apartments, and shared living arrangements.

The aim of SDA is to provide people with disabilities with access to high-quality, safe, and accessible housing that meets their unique needs and allows them to live as independently and comfortably as possible. SDA is an important component of the NDIS, as it recognizes the vital role that appropriate and accessible housing plays in supporting the health, well-being, and quality of life of people with disabilities.


SDA Accommodation Design Categories

In Australia, there are five SDA (Specialized Disability Accommodation) design categories that have been established to guide the design and construction of SDA properties. These categories are based on the level of support and accessibility required by individuals with disabilities, and they include:

  1. Improved Liveability: This category includes properties that have been designed to improve the liveability of individuals with moderate to high support needs, including features such as wider doorways, step-free entries, and accessible bathrooms.
  2. Fully Accessible: This category includes properties that have been designed to be fully accessible for individuals with high support needs, including features such as hoists, adjustable benches, and full wheelchair access.
  3. Robust: This category includes properties that have been designed to be robust and durable, with features such as reinforced walls and floors, and heavy-duty fixtures and fittings.
  1. High Physical Support: This category includes properties that have been designed to provide high levels of physical support for individuals with very high support needs, including features such as ceiling hoists, adjustable beds, and specialist equipment.
  2. Specialist Disability Accommodation: This category includes properties that have been designed to meet the specific needs of individuals with complex and challenging behaviours, such as properties with secure perimeters, sensory rooms, and specialist staff.
