Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) refers to accommodation for people who require specialist housing solutions, including assistance with delivery of supports which cater for their extreme functional impairment or very high support needs.
SDA Housing is an exclusively well-thought-out service to improve liveability, accessibility, choice, and independence through the inclusion of purpose-built house modifications.
At NCA, we prioritise the wellbeing of participants, by ensuring our housing services provide strong and safe environments and are situated in the best locations. We strive to deliver a high level of focussed care throughout all SDA housing services.
Who is eligible for SDA?
Funding is only provided to a small proportion of NDIS participants with extreme functional impairment or very high support needs who meet specific eligibility criteria.

Villa, duplex, and townhouse
What are the different types of SDA housing categories?
Housing without specialist design features, but with a location or other features that cater for the needs of people with disability and assist with the delivery of support services.
Housing that has been designed to improve liveability by incorporating a reasonable level of physical access and enhanced provision for people with sensory, intellectual, or cognitive impairment.
Housing that has been designed to incorporate a high level of physical access provision for people with significant physical impairment.
Housing that has been designed to incorporate a high level of physical access provision and be very resilient, while reducing the likelihood of reactive maintenance and reducing the risk to residents and the community.
High physical support
Housing that has been designed to incorporate a high level of physical access provision for people with significant physical impairment and requiring very high levels of support.
Supported independent living (SIL) and specialised disability accommodation (SDA) sound similar but are different in application. SIL and SDA exist independently. Some participants may receive SIL funding only, while others may receive both SIL and SDA.
