To discuss your accommodation needs, and whether an SDA Liveable Homes solution might be right for you please contact our tenancy matching and advocacy provider:

Summer Foundation
Phone: 1300 626 560
PO Box 208 Blackburn VIC 3130

To be eligible for an SDA Liveable Homes application you need to:

  • have a goal to live more independently, including using assistive technology
  • be able to live well in a home with one other resident
  • be between 18 – 64 years of age
  • have a very significant physical impairment with complex support needs
  • have planned 1:1 supports for more than 5 hours per day
  • be currently living in residential aged care, awaiting discharge from hospital, living with family, or living in shared accommodation

Please note that many SDA Liveable Homes will be designed for two residents to offer independence and companionship at the same time. As such, you must enjoy the company of others and be comfortable in such an environment.

In order to move into an SDA Liveable Homes home, you will need to:

  • be approved by the NDIA for SDA high physical support in your NDIS plan prior to moving in (but not necessarily at the time of applying to Summer Foundation)
  • agree to some shared support needs to be delivered via a nominated Supported Independent Living (SIL) provider
  • be willing to uphold your responsibilities associated with a residential tenancy agreement, such as paying a reasonable rent contribution (RRC)

Family and other solutions

We are pleased to be able to make available a select number of homes for occupation by a qualifying tenant in co-habitation with their family members. These opportunities are on the basis that the family members enter into a normal residential property agreement (at market rates) to supplement your SDA payments and your RRC.

We also have select availabilities for people with high physical support needs to share one of our homes with an SDA-qualifying friend or associate (they are comfortable living with) who may not qualify for the same level of SDA support.

Please contact the Summer Foundation to discuss whether we may be able to assist.

Where do you want to live?

Our aim is to provide homes throughout a variety of suburban and city locations, close to amenities, services and entertainment, to enable people with disabilities to maximise independent lifestyles and inclusion in the community.

We are always working on new design and location opportunities including home, town home and apartment opportunities in and around Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne.

If our current home opportunities don’t meet your needs in terms of design or location, please do not hesitate to contact us as we may be working on something that suits that may be available at a later stage. We also keep in touch with other SDA providers and may be able to assist in putting you in touch with them if our opportunities don’t meet you needs.
