Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA)

disability accommodation and housing

The shortage of disability accommodation in Australia has been well documented, especially with regard to Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA). So we are excited to report that we have partnered with specialist suppliers Independent Living Villages (ILV) to deliver seven fully accessible, purpose-built apartments at Merrylands.

Offered through the SDA scheme, the one and two bedroom apartments have communal indoor and outdoor space. Set in beautifully landscaped gardens, all apartments are built to Livable Housing Australia Silver and Platinum standards. 24/7 specialist support tailored to individual needs is provided by Civic.

Specialist Disability Accommodation helps people to have more independence while still receiving the care they need. Our purpose built housing helps to deliver supports tailored towards personal requirements.

If housing is one of the supports listed on your plan then you may also be able to get NDIS SDA funding to help you with the financial side of things. This would usually be because you need to live in purpose built Specialist Disability Accommodation to receive the care you require.

Our new units will meet the requirements for NDIS SDA funding, so residents will be able to receive the supports they need. Apart from being purpose-built to provide care, we have ensured that the living space is easily accessible and pleasant, with outdoor space and landscaped gardens.

The apartments are due for completion in March 2019 and tenancies are being secured now.

If you have, or expect to have, SDA in your NDIS plan, contact Tiffany Coles for further information on tiffany.coles@civic.org.au or call 0447 333 049.
