By 2025 up to 30,000 NDIS participants with ‘extreme functional impairment’ or ‘very high support needs’ are expected to be receiving funding for Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA).

A national survey of 75 active SDA providers was undertaken in August 2021, in order to understand the current and future supply of SDA. Understanding the housing supply pipeline is critical to supporting SDA market development. The NDIA provides supply data for in-kind and enrolled SDA, but only limited information on SDA in development. Therefore, this survey offers insights into the SDA pipeline across Australia in 2021, and combines the survey results with the data published by the NDIA to provide the market with an estimate of forthcoming supply.

This report also provides insights into the experiences of SDA providers, including their plans to develop more SDA.
