Succeeding with SDA

According to the AFR, disability housing is predicted to be a $5 billion industry backed by the National Disability Insurance Scheme. With the introduction and implementation of the SDA funding model, the desire to construct houses for individuals with a disability is plentiful, however, the challenges accompanied with that desire have proven to be as equally extensive. The issue predominantly resides in the understanding and interpreting of the SDA funding model along with its guidelines. Organisations are currently striving to find ways to obtain funding, meet the vaguely presented guidelines and occupy their properties with eligible participants.

The prime question now is how do we mitigate the risks and elevate the interest in developing SDA, to assist the most marginalised members of our society?

The 2019 Navigating the Complexities of Disability Housing conference will bring together thought leaders from across the nation to provide you with the key skills needed to overcome challenges with SDA, through sustainable knowledge & experience based solutions.

Key takeaways include

  • Understanding & clearly interpreting the guidelines
  • Mitigating vacancy & legal risk associated with SDA
  • Building collaborative partnerships & discovering alternative funding models
  • Learning how to innovate customer centric building designs
