Last week Sana Living had the opportunity to show The Hon Linda Reynolds, Minister for NDIS through some of their Specialist Disability Accommodation in WA.

The visit came shortly following the Minster’s pledge to work towards making the NDIS a better and more sustainable scheme for the 450,000 participants with a disability relying on it. *

Specialist Disability Accommodation became part of the NDIS in 2016 commencing in WA in 2019, designed to give people living with a disability increased choice and control regarding how and where they live.  Sana Living is working to support NDIS participants by developing a pipeline of housing for over 450 NDIS participants in Australia.

A few members of the Sana Living Team who support participants with their SDA journey, alongside CEO Michael Keenan, were delighted to give Minister Reynolds a tour of the SDA home, to showcase the assistive technology, the thoughtful design and the touches of luxury that raise the standard in Australia of Disability Accommodation.  This three-bedroom share home in Wanneroo will mean greater independence, comfort, and safety for the three excited NDIS participants who will be moving in during the coming months.

Minister Reynolds was able to see firsthand what SDA funding can mean to someone living with a disability.

She said, “All Australians should be able to make decisions about how and where they live. Specialist Disability Accommodations (SDA) provides eligible NDIS participants with access to appropriate housing options and empowers them to make decisions about their own living arrangements.”

“This is a very personal issue for me and one that I remain absolutely committed to and was delighted to see younger Australians with disability being able to live independently in their own homes – utilising the latest in assisted technology.”

Sana Living have a range of housing options available for those living with a disability across WA, QLD and soon SA. Accommodation options include homes, villas, duplexes, and apartments in both independent and shared configurations. .
