Carers Victoria submission to the Specialist Disability Accommodation Pricing and Payments Framework Review

Carers Victoria submission to the Specialist Disability Accommodation Pricing and Payments Framework Review

Carers Victoria developed a submission for the NDIS Supported Disability Accommodation (SDA) Pricing and Payments Framework Review. We focused on constrained opportunities for NDIS participants and carers in the current Framework which does not appear to support a truly innovative and ambitious market for SDA in Australia. Carers Victoria recommended the Framework mandate the NDIA to regularly publish data on the number of NDIS participants who test their eligibility for SDA and how many are seeking to move from existing SDA stock to more contemporary community living. The NDIA needs to stimulate SDA in sufficient volume and place NDIS participants, their families and carers at the centre of decisions about SDA allocations.

In addition to our submission, Carers Victoria was also pleased to endorse the Submission to the NDIS SDA Pricing and Payments Framework Review authored by the Summer Foundation. This submission was jointly made by more than 20 organisations that advocate for people with disability or are providers of SDA housing. This comprehensive submission discussed pricing assumptions and the interface with NDIS SDA Rules, the recently released Provider and Investor Brief and other operational processes.
