Disability Housing Specialists
NDIS PROPERTY AUSTRALIA has been created to help both NDIS Service Providers across Australia meet their housing needs for their Participants, as well as investors to create long term solutions for housing within the SDA market. Through the introduction and rollout of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) across Australia, NDIS Participants now have ‘choice & control’ in the care they receive and the Providers they choose to work with.
To meet the updated requirements for Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) our team is working with various builders across Australia to build new, well designed & fit-for-purpose homes for NDIS Providers and Participants who demand the best in Specialist Disability Accommodation.
It is our goal to see Participants with high-needs disabilities being appropriately housed in accommodation that is right for them. Purpose built homes promote opportunities for social and economic participation, enhance self-determination, and create conditions for Participants to lead vibrant, safe, and independent lives.
NDIS PROPERTY AUSTRALIA’s podcast series covers a wide range of topics from information about how we work with all stakeholders in sourcing and delivering new products which are SDA compliant, to general information about the NDIS, and statistics about Specialist Disability Accommodation in the NDIS sector.
Demand for specialist disability accommodation (SDA) has grown as institutional and private investors swoop in on this fast-growing sector.
The number of active providers has inflated by 33% over the past year. There are currently 2,162 new dwellings in the pipeline across Australia with Queensland and NSW receiving the most at 739 and 612 respectively.
More than two thirds of these dwellings are for high physical support however funding for this category is the hardest to obtain.
At present, nationally an estimated 77% of SDA places are in existing and legacy dwellings. A substantial amount of existing and legacy stock is not suited for participant needs. As new dwellings are constructed and the SDA market becomes both more mature and transparent, it is becoming more akin to the standard residential rental market where participants have increased living options and naturally gravitate to higher quality accommodation that suits their individual requirements.
Over the past 12 months, the proportion of participants living in SDA who are looking for an alternative dwelling has increased from 1.8% to 11.3%. At the same time, the number of New Build dwellings has increased by over 80%. In Queensland, where a considerable amount of new development has occurred, 1 in every 6 participants in an SDA dwelling are looking for an alternative dwelling.
Whether you are an experienced property investor, fund manager, or a Mum and Dad investor, the team here at NDIS PROPERTY AUSTRALIA works with those of you who wish to invest in SDA as a means of growing your property portfolio, benefiting from the exceptional rental yields, as well as helping to improve the lives of disabled Australians who have been limited in their housing choice as a result of inadequate and inappropriate housing options.
We can provide you with a choice of investment options based on properties that are being developed and built specifically to be SDA compliant, and also connect you with relevant industry professionals to guide you through the process of completing a purchase as well as finding tenants for your property once completed.
The National Disability Insurance Scheme applies to all State and Territories of Australia. The NDIS provides support to eligible people with intellectual, physical, psychological, cognitive and sensory disabilities. This A$30B a year program will support half a million people in achieving their goals. Of this funding, $700M is allocated to Specialist Disability Accommodation.
Current suppliers for NDIS housing are unable to meet the demand for suitable housing due to a lack of funding. Estimates show there is a A$5B deficit to meet the NDIS goals for Special Disability Accommodation and SDA participants. This has created an opportunity for private investors to support government commitments.
Upwards of 50,000 NDIS participants who need now, or are expected to require specialised housing by 2030, currently have no access to Specialist Disability Accommodation. Additionally, a high percentage of existing housing will require upgrading or redevelopment in the near future. NDIS PROPERTY AUSTRALIA supports Participants with a forever home built and designed to create independence and freedom, to assist carers and improve the quality of life.
Our business linkups with Builders, Developers & NDIS Providers is aimed at providing a ethical investment opportunity with sustainable long-term returns, not only for the investors but also for the Participants themselves.
The NDIS has been created to give all Australians peace of mind if they, or a family member is born or acquires permanent of significant disability. The NDIS has been set up to ensure they get the supports they require and the SDA helps deliver accommodation in the form of liveable homes for participants.
Liveable homes are designed to meet the changing needs of occupants across their lifetime. They must be easy to enter, to navigate around, be capable of cost effective adaption. They must be responsive to changing needs of home occupants, offering them maximum independence and as well as ensuring that providers are able to respond to participant needs and preferences.
