Welcome Home: SDA compliance education package set to launch

Welcome Home

The Summer Foundation  will launch Welcome Home, our compliance education package for registered providers of specialist disability accommodation (SDA) on 10 May 2021.

Our SDA Quality & Safeguards Project Manager Rosie Beaumont, said the package was designed to help SDA providers understand their obligations under the SDA Practice Standards and explore a rights-based approach to service delivery.

The free package of compliance education resources provides a comprehensive explanation of the SDA Practice Standards and includes 6 training modules, management tools, factsheets, policy guides, videos and podcasts.

The topics covered include:

  • Rights and Responsibilities
  • Conflict of interest
  • Service agreements
  • Enrolment of SDA properties
  • Tenancy management

The Welcome Home package will be available for  self-paced learning on the Summer Foundation’s soon-to-be launched  online training platform, Summer Learning.

Rosie said a series of Welcome Home webinars will be rolled out from June this year, giving  SDA providers the opportunity to discuss a rights-based approach to service delivery and how well common management practices align with  the SDA Practice Standards.
