Making Homes Accessible: The Impact of SDA Funding

Dom, an engagement consultant at BlueWing, is dedicated to helping participants find suitable homes and support services. He finds great satisfaction in witnessing participants thrive in their new living environments. Today, Dom shares the importance of Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) in the lives of individuals with disabilities.

Understanding Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA)

Dom explains that SDA is pivotal for individuals with disabilities as it provides access to purpose-built homes tailored to their specific needs. For instance, individuals in wheelchairs may require high levels of physical accessibility, while those with tendencies for property damage may need reinforced, robust homes.

The Difference SDA Funding Makes

Dom highlights the significance between plans with and without SDA funding. With SDA funding, individuals have the opportunity to access purpose-built homes that cater to their unique requirements. However, without SDA funding, individuals may need to explore alternative accommodation options such as private rentals through their provider, albeit with additional financial considerations.

Navigating Funding and Support Services

Dom emphasises the importance of understanding the funding dynamics within the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) framework. While SDA funding covers accommodation, Supported Independent Living (SIL) funding addresses support services required for independent living. As a provider, BlueWing accesses SIL funding to deliver these crucial services, regardless of individuals’ SDA funding status.

Provider Assistance

Dom reassures participants that BlueWing is committed to providing comprehensive support. For those with SDA funding, they offer guidance and direction to access purpose-built accommodation. However, even in the absence of SDA funding, BlueWing assists individuals in finding suitable properties and offers support services through SIL funding. With extensive connections in the disability accommodation space, BlueWing ensures that participants receive the support they need to thrive.

Dom and the team at BlueWing are dedicated to ensuring that individuals with disabilities have access to suitable accommodation and support services. Whether it’s navigating funding complexities or finding the right living environment, BlueWing is committed to supporting participants every step of the way.
