Youngcare’s Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA)
We are committed to supporting young people’s choice to live young lives in quality housing. Youngcare’s building program designs and develops age-appropriate housing solutions where young people with high physical support needs can live young lives with choice, independence and dignity in their own homes.
To date, Youngcare has led the way across Australia in designing premium residential solutions for young people with high physical support needs. For years we have been working and partnering with architects, developers and residents to help young people living in, or at risk of entering inappropriate housing, but there is still a significant gap in specialist disability accommodation housing in Australia.
We have learnt that there is not a one-size-fits-all solution; we are dedicated to providing the right solution for the right situation.
To be eligible for Youngcare’s Housing, people must be eligible for Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) at the ‘High Physical Support’ level, within their NDIS Plan. For further information on SDA please read our FAQs or call Youngcare Connect on 1800 844 727.

At Youngcare, we have seen first-hand how high-quality Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) can have a positive impact on our residents health and wellbeing and their families lives.
We have developed our own design guidelines that help us deliver Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) above industry standards, in locations that have great access to the community and local amenities, resulting in longer term tenancies.
Having a diverse portfolio helps us to minimise vacancy rates and optimises residents’ choice and control.
We deliver a variety of accommodation types including:
- single person apartments and villas – for those residents who want to live independently;
- 2 bedroom apartments and duplexes – where residents share with one other person;
- 3 + 4 bedroom share houses – where residents share with 2 or 3 other people.
Our Tenants love the freedom they get in living in their Specialist Disability Accommodation. We welcome referrals from family members and friends on behalf of people with a disability.
