What is Specialist Disability Accommodation?
Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) is for people who have extreme functional impairment or very high support needs and therefore need specialist housing solutions and supports. It is a product under the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).
Link Housing became a Registered Provider of National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) in 2017 as part of our commitment to providing people with a disability greater choice about where and how they live in the community.
We work in partnership with established Supported Independent Living (SIL) providers to deliver appropriate and long-term housing to people with SDA funding.
Currently, we work with the following disability support providers:
Link Housing currently house more than 250 residents in group homes in Sydney and are deeply committed to helping them to access the support they need to live independent lives and reach their goals.
How we can help you
We have a dedicated and experienced team of Disability Housing Specialists who help adults and families living with disability.
Part of the Link Housing Disability and Ageing team, our Specialists take a person-centred approach and work closely with clients and their families to understand their individual needs and advise them on their options.
Our Disability Housing Specialists can help with:
- Advising on your eligibility for Specialist Disability Accommodation
- Assisting to include SDA in participant’s NDIS plan
- Placing you in appropriate and long-term SDA accommodation
- Finding suitable non-SDA accommodation options through our Social Housing, Affordable Housing or Property Development services
- Link Housing can also arrange for a home to be modified if requested by a health practitioner.

Participants and families can register as SDA providers under the same terms of business conditions as a housing provider.
