Summer Foundation statement on the new Specialist Disability Accommodation Operational Guidelines

Tags:


Description:

NDIA has released new Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) Operational Guidelines (OG), which includes criteria for living alone with onsite shared support (OSS). These new guidelines are restrictive and will mean many people who are able to live alone and access shared onsite support will need to navigate additional hurdles to access a model of support which promotes independence and delivers value for money for participants and the NDIS. The OG should reflect the flexibility of living in a model of SDA with OSS, use evidence to establish average wait times, and expand the ways in which participants can call for assistance.
