SDA Market Moves
There has been a lot of changes in the SDA market over the past 6 to 12 months. Design standards, implementation plans, innovation plans, new SDA Rule due to be released at any minute - these are just some of the changes you need to be aware of if you are entering or operating within the SDA market at present.

SDA From the Frontline
The first of the SDA ‘Frontline’ webinars features a candid interview with one of Australia's most experienced SDA proponents - Justin Nix, CEO Guardian Living and SDAA Board Member. Justin has worn many SDA hats including accessible housing consultant, assessor and now CEO of a major provider. He gives valuable insights into a successful SDA journey and the mistakes to avoid along the way.
Brent is a bona fide master of Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) detail, which considering he is an engineer is not surprising. Brent has built his reputation as one of the sector's leading experts in SDA with involvement in over 50 SDA related projects to date, ranging from parent groups, small organisations, large national organisations, state governments, community housing providers, for-profit investors, developers and many financial institutions. What Brent doesn’t know about SDA is probably the stuff the NDIA don’t know themselves yet.
Brent brings a unique skill set to NDIS Housing, with over 25 years consulting experience in accessible design as well as a lived experience as the proud father of teenage identical twins, one of whom has cerebral palsy.

Rebecca has a knack of understanding the organisational implications from all perspectives and can filter and translate this to the people around her.
