In a media release earlier today, the NDIS minister confirmed that further changes will be made to the delivery of NDIS plans so that participants have more choice and flexibility when accessing SDA assistance/funding.
The minister advised that the changes to the SDA rules will mean that couples can share a bedroom if they choose, and children will be able to share a room with their parents or siblings. The minister confirmed that these changes are important as they assist participants in reaching their goal of independence.
The following was announced during the release, ‘The NDIS enables people with disability to live more independently and one of the most fundamental aspects of all our lives is having choice and control over where we live, who we live with and the supports we need,’ Mr Robert said. ‘We are improving the range of options available to participants who have SDA in their NDIS plans, while also stimulating growth in the SDA housing market.’
