This paper shares PwC and the Summer Foundation's vision of a mature, properly functioning disability housing market as well as discussing pathways that need to be in place to reach it.

The features of the current market for disability housing can be summarised as follows:

This paper also share lessons learned from other markets, some related (community housing) and some not (financial deregulation) and what to look out for as the SDA market matures.
