Building your skills to write a housing plan (Swan Hill)

  • April 22nd, 2020 1:00 pm
  • 2-8 King Street, Swan Hill VIC
Starts In:

The Summer Foundation is running this workshop to explain the Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) pathway. This workshop will build the capacity of NDIS support coordinators and allied health professionals to explore the housing options of the participants they’re work for, and write quality housing plans.

Who is this for?

  • Support coordinators
  • NDIS allied health professionals

Why should you attend?

It is anticipated that only 6 per cent of NDIS participants will be eligible for SDA. If you’ve been contracted by a participant who may be eligible for SDA and has funding to reach a housing related goal, it is vital that you provide NDIA decision makers with housing plans that address the SDA eligibility criteria.

Topics Include

  • Current NDIA thinking and approaches to SDA funding
  • Using our new SDA Housing Plan Template and Guide
  • The critical role OTs play


Workshop participants will understand:

  • The evidence the NDIA needs to determine whether SDA is a reasonable and necessary support for an individual
  • Why addressing the SDA Rules drives innovation, and safeguards the housing needs and preferences of people with disability
  • How to write a quality housing plan

Why should you attend?

This workshop will be facilitated by Penny Paul, the Summer Foundation’s Senior Policy and Research Officer and SDA eligibility expert.
