Leading the development of safer, more comfortable and easier to access homes for everybody.
To do that we
Certify that a home is easier to access, navigate and live in, and that it is cost effective to adapt as life’s circumstances change.
Educate through a program of professional accreditation that provides assurance for industry and the community as they seek informed advice.
Advocate for policy and regulation that supports industry and professional leadership.
SDA Design Standard
Through our advocacy, LHA informs and supports the National Disability Insurance Scheme Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) Design Standard. LHA was engaged by NDIS and developed the standalone SDA Design Standard and the certification model that are now required for SDA.
The SDA Design Standard is critical in supporting the delivery of accommodation for people who require specialist housing solutions, including assisting with the delivery of supports that cater to their extreme functional impairment or very high support needs.
