Rocky Bay has been confirmed as Western Australia’s first and only active Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) provider to accommodate the state’s first SDA customer, beginning a wave of new accommodation options for people living with disability in WA.
The initiative is aimed at generating greater investment in accommodation for people living with disability across Australia and provides a boost SDA for eligible National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) participants.
The SDA funding will provide opportunities for those living with high or complex needs to be supported in appropriate accommodation which is purpose built to meet their requirements, including assistive technology and daily living support. It will also provide eligible participants with great flexibility in choice and more control in deciding where to live and with whom.
Rocky Bay currently has five two-bedroom SDA approved properties located in Mosman Park, with plans underway to build more across the Perth metropolitan area.
SDA will need to be included in eligible participants NDIS plans when requested, so customers, their carers, guardians or families can go to market to find or commission a home that suits their individual needs.
Customers can directly test their eligibility for SDA with a dedicated national team available to guide the planning and assessment processes and provide greater assistance to customers.
