Specialist Disability Accommodation

Afford supports people with disability find purpose-built Specialist Disability Accommodation.

We are committed to making sure your experience of Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) at Afford is a positive one. This means we work closely with you and your family or support people to make sure we understand your accommodation needs and goals.

What is Specialist Disability Accommodation?

SDA is one of the home and living supports the NDIS might fund for NDIS participants. It is housing for people with very high support needs.

Specialist Disability Accommodation is designed to be more accessible for you based on your disability-related support needs. It assists you to live more independently in your home and allows your other supports to be delivered better and more safely.

Specialist Disability Accommodation at Afford

If you’re looking for Specialist Disability Accommodation you’ve come to the right place!

Our SDA homes have been purpose-built or adapted to suit the needs of NDIS participants with high support needs. These are often related to accessibility, or the level of person-to-person support you need. For example, you might need a home with reinforced ceilings so you can get a ceiling hoist installed.

Our SDA homes meet the NDIS’ standards and requirements for Specialist Disability Accommodation.

You might choose to live in a shared home with a small number of other people where you have your own private bedroom. Or you might choose to live in Specialist Disability Accommodation by yourself or with a friend or partner.

Together, we will work out the best option for you and your needs.

We have SDA homes in New South Wales and Queensland. We currently do not provide SDA in South Australia and Victoria.

Self-funded and Fee for Service Packages

You do not have to have government-approved funding packages, such as NDIS to access our disability supports and services.

Self-funded is a way for you to pay for services with your own money. This option provides flexibility to access the supports you need if you have a one-off request, or if your government funding package does not cover what you need. You can also self-fund supports while you wait for approval of a funding package.

Fee for Service Packages are also available for people who are self-funded and would like to access our range of disability services.

Contact us to explore your funding options.

NDIS funding information for SDA Accommodation (including eligibility criteria)

Specialist Disability Accommodation is designed to work with several different funded NDIS supports. When the NDIS is deciding if you’re eligible for SDA, it thinks about what other supports you need and how they’ll work together. It only funds SDA if it’s a better option for your disability support needs than other supports alone.

You only need Specialist Disability Accommodation if you need to live in a specialised home, and you also need very high levels of person-to-person support.

To work out if you’re eligible for Specialist Disability Accommodation, the NDIS will ask:

About your needs and the level of support required
If you have a SDA needs requirement
If SDA meets the NDIS funding criteria for you.

Visit the Specialist Disability Accommodation page on the NDIS website to learn more about SDA and the NDIS.
