Our second Specialist Disability Accommodation Supply in Australia report has just been published.
Produced with Social Ventures Australia, the latest report finds that there are more than 1,766 new SDA places in the construction pipeline as at 30 September 2019.
Combining this with the 1,190 New Build SDA places reported in the latest NDIS Quarterly Report as at 30 September 2019, this means there are now nearly 3,000 SDA places that are new or in the pipeline.
The SDA market remains in its infancy and there is much more to do to create an SDA market that delivers the scale of housing anticipated, however we are encouraged by the continued growth and development of the market.
“A key challenge for developers and investors looking at SDA is understanding where and what to build,” said Summer Foundation CEO Di Winkler.
“We have a vision for Australia where people with disability have access to high quality housing that is everything they might need and want in a home. We hope this report will inform the next phase of investment in SDA towards that vision.”
