Specialised Accommodation or SDA is for people who have extreme functional impairment or very high support and/or are ageing who require specialised housing solutions. This is accommodation which has the ability to support a person with additional needs.
The NDIS SDA payment is funded purely for the dwelling itself and does not include funding for carers, SIL (Supported Independent Living) payments would cover this and would be discussed in a separate area of your plan.
At LHB we bring together all parties to design, finance, project manage and construct complex long- term secured housing tailored to each individual’s needs, ensuring you are given the proper housing suitability. We own and manage all of our own properties giving you piece of mind knowing who the landlord of the property is.
The NDIS will provide about 460,000 Australians under the age of 65 with a permanent and significant disability with the reasonable and necessary supports they need to live an ordinary life.
NDIS participants now have control of where they would like to live as well as how they would like to be cared. The NDIS is aiming to offer effective and efficient support for the 6% of NDIS participants identified with the most complex needs.
LHB will work alongside the participants, their families, support workers, support providers and health professionals into ensure that all requirements are met on an individual basis.
Provider / Co-ordinator
As a support coordinator or SIL provider working along-side and collaborating with LHB as the SDA Provider ensures that your organisation is aligned with a provider who has a genuine passion for the participants and their families. We understand the monumental change that this type of housing brings to the participant and their families. We pride ourselves on the information we provide all parties which allows for an informed decision to be made when it comes to housing options.
Our model is risk-free for all participants and organisations as there are no 'locked-in' agreements, which allows for full choice and control.
NDIS Support co-ordinators, where funded play a critical role in supporting participants to determine which dwellings to apply for, location and also who the participants could be potentially living with. As a co-ordinator you may be required to assist in negotiation of SDA offers, providing accurate and current information about their support needs and preferences in an application for a modified building.
As an SDA provider here at LHB we are here to educate and collaborate with the SIL or co-ordinators to get the best possible outcome for the participant to find independent living.
Contact us about our SDA Education Seminars that we are happy to provide free of charge to your organisation, your participants and their families.
