SDA Funding Requirements

The NDIS participants who get SDA approved in their NDIS plans are people who, even with appropriate home modifications and/or assistive technologies, still need a high level of in-home support from a paid worker with daily activities such as getting in and out of bed, getting dressed, moving around, preparing meals or accessing the community.

SDA is intended for participants who have an extreme or complete functional impairment due to disability or have very high support needs (including housing needs) most appropriately met by an SDA response

The NDIS will approve SDA for people with very high support needs. ‘Very high support needs’ means one or more of the following:

  • That your ‘informal supports’ (people who help you but don’t get paid for their help; often family or friends) can’t meet your personal care needs
  • You have spent a long time in a group home or residential aged care (this includes people who already live in Shared Supported Accommodation / Group Homes / young people living in nursing homes etc.)
  • You use behaviours that pose a risk to yourself or others

Am I eligible for SDA funding?

If you answer Yes to any one of the questions below, then you may be eligible for SDA funding:

Do you use a wheelchair to mobilise?

Do you require assistance for transfers?

Do you require assistance with personal care?

Would specialised accommodation help improve your degree of independence?

Have you previously or do you currently live in supported accommodation?

Feel free to contact us for any help about the NDIS process.
