SDA Design Standards
Through our advocacy, LHA informs and supports the National Disability Insurance Scheme Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) Design Standards. LHA was engaged by NDIS and developed the standalone SDA Design Standards and the certification model that are now required for SDA.
The SDA Design Standards are critical in supporting the delivery of accommodation for people who require specialist housing solutions, including to assist with the delivery of supports that cater to their extreme functional impairment or very high support needs.
