Liverty Housing Impact Report

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provides housing payments for people with disability who need housing that allows them to access support, and is designed to maximise independence. This housing payment is called Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA).

Since SDA payments were introduced in 2016, we – under the name Summer Housing – have become one of Australia’s largest SDA providers. Our focus has been to build high quality, contemporary disability housing across the country to support hundreds of people with disability to move into their new home and live as independently as possible.

We have become one of the country’s most innovative SDA providers, pioneering new approaches that are now being replicated around the country. Now as the NDIS and SDA enter a new era, our organisation must evolve. In this new era, our focus will be on setting a new benchmark in service excellence in SDA.

And for that new era, we have a new name… Liverty Housing.

A new name for a new era, but with the experience and history as one of Australia’s leading SDA providers. A history which will be the foundation of success for Liverty Housing.

About this report

This report provides an overview of the impact we have had since we launched in 2017.

To report our impact we are using the Impact Management Project’s (IMP) five dimensions which include: what, who, how much, contribution and risk (further information available on page 28).

We also use icons throughout the report that reference the relevant United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

Given this is our first impact report we have made the best use of available data. We have completed an Impact Risk Classification (IRC) (see page 22) to assess how robust that data is and to assess the level of thought and focus we have given to how we expect to generate impact.

Our goal is to be a leader in understanding and reporting on our impact. The IRC will provide us with guidance to develop new systems and processes in the next 12 months to collate and analyse a wider range of impact data including our environmental impact.

While this report covers the impacts we have had on the lives of our tenants and on the broader community over the past six years, in future we will report annually. We commit to doing that in a clear and honest manner so that our tenants, partners, investors and staff can all see what we are doing well, and where we can improve.
