Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) can provide solid investment returns. However, like anything that appears "too good to be true", SDA market complexities and misinformation can make for incredibly costly mistakes. In this live workshop, we cover everything you need to know about the SDA market to separate fact from fiction and make smart decisions.
- SDA 101 - what SDA does and does not look like
- Where, when, how and why - where are the better locations for SDA properties, do you build before you have future tenants lined up, how do you go about a SDA project and why are you doing it?
- Partnerships: successful outcomes demand strong sector partnerships. Who should you get into bed with?
- Ownership and/or operation - should you be an SDA provider or is that not smart?

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.
