A participant-led approach to delivering SDA

Through our unique, participant-led GuideYouHome process, we help people searching for an SDA (specialist disability accommodation) home that will suit their needs. Delivering homes built to meet the needs of each resident in their preferred location and providing the security that this is their home for the long-term.

New Robust Home for Rydalmere

The first home to be delivered under the GuideYouHome participant-led process. This Robust home in Rydalmere (NSW) is designed to suit the needs of the two young men who will be living in this home long-term.

Our two residents required a home that gave them each plenty of space. Having the separate wings was really important to create their own private areas, with private living spaces designed to suit their own individual preferences and living requirements.

The large backyard has privacy fences, and was designed to be an area to be active and enjoy the outdoors; including a pool, outdoor hammock and dedicated garden spaces.

Saving the NDIA over $60,000 per person

A person living in single-occupant SDA needing 2.4-hours less support per day could save the NDIA over $60,000 per person annually (Summer Foundation, 2022, Quantitative Research Summary).
