Disability Accommodation Reforms to Increase Choice and Control

Published

Reforms to improve Specialist Disability Accommodation services have been welcomed by disability groups, who say it will allow people with disability more choice and control over their accommodation options.

Federal Social Services Minister Paul Fletcher announced on Friday, SDA would be included up front in National Disability Insurance Scheme plans, allowing participants, their carers and families, to go into the market and find a home to suit their individual needs.

Fletcher said he expected up to $700 million in SDA payments would be made each year after the full rollout to accommodate 28,000 participants requiring a specialist housing solution.

He said the reforms would also stimulate construction and supply of diverse housing options for NDIS participants.
