Show Notes

David Whitelaw returns to the SDA Housing Podcast as Minh visits the Adapt Housing office to chat about the NDIS’ new price guide for SDA, its impact and what the next twelve months has in store for Adapt.

Adapt housing has been in the market since not long after NDIS started up and is a great example of a company taking things one step at a time, and growing into a very successful SDA provider who are now one of the most focused, knowledgeable, and reliable providers available. 

In this episode we get a little insight into their business model, how it has affected themselves, and participants in the past and how they’re moving forward and addressing changes in the industry. David covers the unusual and unexpected changes to the price guide since July 1st 2023 and the positive impact they will have in providing people with housing solutions.

We discuss a few topics such as:

  • The increases in IL and FA funding
  • The decreases in HPS apartment funding
  • What this means for providers and participants
  • Using the knowledge of these changes to create more flexibility in tenancy options
  • How it affects the market and the behaviour of investors
  • Appendix H in Price Guide

Now that IL funding has increased overall we also cover where all those participants are, why they aren’t as prevalent yet, and what’s being done to identify and bring those people forward and into appropriate accommodation.



Our goal is to see Participants with high-needs disabilities being appropriately housed in accommodation that is right for them. Purpose-built homes promote opportunities for social and economic participation, enhance self-determination, and create conditions for Participants to lead vibrant, safe, and independent lives.
