The Summer Foundation and PricewaterhouseCoopers have launched a joint report entitled NDIS Specialist Disability Accommodation: Pathway to a mature market.
One of the most important tasks for the NDIS is to create more housing for people with disability, especially for young people living in aged care. Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) payments are the mechanism the NDIS is using to stimulate the creation of this housing.
This report aims to provide the information necessary to see the SDA market grow. It shares our vision of what a mature SDA market will look like, highlights five different types of market players involved and shares lessons learnt from the growth of other markets. It also identifies nine key enablers that can be used to monitor the maturity of the SDA market.
This report is the start of a conversation. We welcome feedback and reflections from across the community on how to achieve the vision for housing in the NDIS.
