Houses and apartments, made for you.

Vera Living are NDIS registered Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) providers. We deliver SDA houses and apartments in Western Australia, Queensland, and Victoria, in suburbs that are requested by participants. Our properties are co-designed with participants, occupational therapists and disability agencies to ensure that the final product is right for every person. We strive to support people living with disability to live their life inclusively and independently.

What We're Often Asked

Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) is a type of property designed and built specifically for NDIS participants with very high functional impairment who require a specialist living solution. The properties (which can be houses or apartments) should be built to allow for services to be provided more effectively in the home, and most importantly, to improve the participant's level of independence.
NDIS participants who are assessed as needing SDA as part of their reasonable and necessary supports will receive funding to cover the costs of SDA. The NDIA will pay for a large amount of the property rent, and the participant will have to contribute what is known as a Reasonable Rent Contribution (RRC). The RRC is equivalent to 25% of the Disability Support Pension and 100% of Commonwealth Rent Assistance (CRA) if it is received by the participant.
Participants who are eligible for SDA funding are those with extreme functional impairment and have very high support needs. We have an eligibility tool to help participants ask the right questions in our Services section. However, the very best person you can talk to is a Support Coordinator. If you do not yet have a Support Coordinator, get in touch with us and we can point you in the right direction.
SDA refers to the physical property which is provided to live in. SIL (Supported Independent Living) refers to the support services which are delivered in your home. SIL can be delivered in SDA, and you can also have SIL funding without SDA funding. It is important to know the difference and how they can assist in different ways.

What We Do

 

Vera Living is a nationally registered Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) provider who work with leading developers and industry partners to design and build thoughtfully liveable apartments and houses near the heart of the community.

Specialist Disability Accommodation can be a tough process to navigate. Our team will continually strive to simplify the SDA process for every client to allow them to get back to what matters: achieving their plan goals and living life.

Vera Living’s aim is to ensure under 65’s at risk of being placed in nursing homes are instead given an option of independence. Built in specific areas, our accommodation also provides a strong connection to the surrounding community, amenities, transport and most importantly, support. A combination of these advantages are designed to help participants achieve their plan goals and ultimately increase their choice and control.

Whether you are just starting your NDIS Plan, or are approved for SDA and looking for the ideal location, we can help and would love to chat.
