Moving into an Edenbridge Living home is a life-changing experience for my brother, who has an intellectual disability. The 1-bedroom villa gives him the independence he craved but still with support available and friends living next door. The Edenbridge team's dedication to their residents' comfort is evident in every detail of their homes.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA)?

SDA is a range of housing designed for people with extreme functional impairment or very high support needs. SDA dwellings have accessible features to help residents live more independently and allow other supports to be delivered better or more safely.

What are the different SDA housing categories?

There are four distinct SDA design categories: Improved Liveability, Fully Accessible, High Physical Support, and Robust.

Can I choose where I live?

Having checked SDA dwelling enrolment and vacancies and within the availability of suitable SDA properties, you can choose your accommodation based on location, type, and provider.

Can I move to another SDA?

Yes, you can move to another SDA if your needs change or if you find a more suitable option. However, this requires a reassessment of your eligibility and needs.

What kind of support can I expect in SDA?

Support varies by accommodation but can include on-site care, access to therapy services, community activities, and assistive technologies.

Who is eligible for SDA?

To be eligible for Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) homes, an individual typically will be aged between 18 and 65, have extreme functional impairment or very high support needs, and be approved for SDA funding in their NDIS plan.

How long does the application process take?

The timeline can vary depending on individual circumstances, including the availability of suitable accommodations and the completeness of your application.

What if my SDA application is denied?

You can request a review of the decision through the NDIS. It’s also beneficial to consult with your NDIS planner or a local area coordinator for further guidance and to explore alternative solutions.

What costs are involved with SDA?

SDA funding covers the cost of the physical environment for eligible NDIS participants. SDA funding does not cover personal daily living costs like groceries and internet.

How can I apply for SDA funding?

Simply contact us and our dedicated team will guide you every step of the way, ensuring you’re on the right path.
