Developing desirable and in demand SDA

Have you wondered why SDA property matching websites like Housing Hub and Nest have so many unleased homes or rooms?

Have you looked at the design and quality of those homes and their suitability for participants?

I will examine all of these elements that go into creating a successful SDA and provide recommendations on how you can maximise your investment by making your SDA more desirable and, more importantly, in demand than other SDAs available on the market. After all, you only receive payments when you have participants living in it, so reducing the vacancy time

Areas I will discuss include:

  • Location, Location, Location,
  • Single occupancy vs shared occupancy
  • Home automation,
  • Quality of finishes and fittings
  • Access to external spaces and common areas.


As one of the three co-authors that developed the new NDIS Specialist Disability Accommodation Design Standard and an Accredited SDA Assessor, Bruce Bromley is well placed to present to investors, developers, property managers including not for profits on the technical aspects of the new SDA requirements.

Training sessions can also be delivered to building design teams, including architects and building designers, to interpret and apply the design standards to developments.

Presentations can be tailored to suit the specific audience and range from a 60-minute overview to a half-day technical training workshop.

All enquiries for presentations can be made on our contact us form and an outline on the target audience and time frame expected. We will then respond with availability and quotation, thank you.
