Engagement and Transition

From the moment you reach out to Enliven Housing, you'll be looked after by an SDA specialist who will personally kick-start your journey and guide you through a transition to your new SDA apartment, so you can live your best life.


Your SDA Journey






When you contact Enliven Housing


Tell us about your situation

Speak to our friendly experts and get an understanding about your SDA eligibility, how our Community Coop operates and whether apartment living is the right fit for you. If you're ready to take the next step, we'll guide you through a straightforward application process.


Assessing your suitability

We'll get to know you and ask for an application and some documents to ensure we have a comprehensive understanding of your needs. Our expert panel carefully reviews your application and develops an internal report that guides our decision-making process.


We'll make you an offer

After careful consideration, we'll present you with one of two outcomes. You will either receive an offer for your home with us or, alternatively, if we believe there might be a better fit elsewhere, we'll recommend providers who align more closely with your requirements.

Our Appeals Program

At Enliven Housing, we believe everyone has the right to live independently if that's their goal and it can be done safely. We understand that SDA, especially single occupancy, is not always straightforward and there are a lot of steps and processes to showing the NDIS why this is the best option for you. That's why we've created an internal program to guide and support you through this unique journey.

We're committed to making your journey towards independent living as smooth as possible and in some cases, we can offer you an interim lease even if the funding isn't quite right. We'll work closely with you to secure the correct funding for your circumstances while ensuring you have a stable place to call home in the meantime.

Right throughout this transition process, our team serve as coaches, providing continuous support and guidance, every step of your journey.
