NDIS Housing Masterclass: Sydney 28th November, 2017

NDIS Masterclass

The NDIS is coming! What are the Housing Opportunities?

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), soon to be spending more than $20,000M per annum on services to over 460,000 people across Australia, is creating huge opportunities (and challenges) for housing development. These include but extend beyond the development of  an additional 14,000 commercially and recurrently funded places of Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA).

This small, interactive masterclass, led by a practitioner with 30 years’ experience, will explore:

  • National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) scale, impact & trajectory.
  • Housing demand driven by the NDIS.
  • Current provision of housing for people with a disability with high support needs including by State Governments.
  • NDIS housing policy & practice.
  • Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) rules, requirements & funding.

Masterclass attendees will be introduced to a “Housing for People with a Disability Framework”  that will assist them to:

  • Engage with the diverse range of players required to develop & deliver housing for people with a disability.
  • Assess housing projects for people with a disability.
  • identify the risk in developing & managing housing for people with a disability.
