​​Specialist disability accommodation 

​Bruce Bromley SDA Consulting

Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) refers to accommodation for participants who require specialist housing solutions to assist with the delivery of supports that cater for their extreme functional impairment and/or very high support needs. SDA does not refer to the support services, but the homes in which these are delivered. SDA may include special designs for people with very high needs or may have a location or features that make it feasible to provide complex or costly supports for independent living.

  • ​What is SDA? 

  • What Buildings are suitable for SDA? 

  • How to design for SDA? 

  • Ensuring that your design meets SDA
