SDA Pack for Providers Delivering Specialist Disability Accommodation

This pack supports NDIS Providers, who are delivering Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) only (i.e. not delivering any other NDIS supports or services) to apply for or renew their NDIS registration and undergo the required Certification Audit against the NDIS Practice Standards’ SDA Module.

The Pack includes an SDA SmartPlan setting out the registration or renewal process and Policies and Procedures that meet all relevant Practice Standard requirements.
