Victorian government consults on protection of SDA tenants' rights
The Victorian government has announced a broad public consultation on the rights of residents in SDA. This will inform future decisions about an appropriate legislative framework for the tenancy rights of people living in SDA under the NDIS, and is prompted by recognition that the current legal framework of the Disability Act 2006 may not fit well with the NDIS environment.
Further information and a copy of the consultation paper can be found on the Victorian government website.
NDS has identified disability housing and support in the NDIS as key areas of both opportunity and risk for disability providers.
many recent updates to SDA and SIL policies and requirements, it will be
crucial for providers to understand funding and practical application of the
relevant policies. It will also be important to consider the implications for
people they support, as well as for the organisation’s assets and services.
NDS is organising six half-day sessions in Parkville and around regional Victoria to explore SIL and SDA in detail. Specific topics to be discussed include registration, quoting, and the implications of the separation of housing and support for organisations that provide SIL. The presentations will also delve into SDA management and payments, housing options for people ineligible for SDA, and the evolving role of the Victorian Government.
