FEEDBACK FOR DSC's NDIS forums

As we transition to the NDIS, the future of state funding for disability advocacy is under threat. Sara Gingold explores how advocacy plays an important role in supporting people with disabilities through life's turbulent times.
Strong pre-planning is essential for getting the best possible outcomes from the NDIS. Faye Lawrence explores how offering pre-planning services can benefit both you and your customers.
The next Information, Linkages & Capacity Building funding round is set to open any day now. Successful grant writer Elizabeth McGarry explores the context of this next round and shares her tips for ILC success.
The NDIA recently updated the Specialist Disability Accommodation Price Guide, increasing both New Build and Existing Stock prices by 2.1%.
Think providers need to be big to survive in the NDIS? Roland Naufal debunks the 'get big' approach and outlines the strategies that are working.
The NDIS is a plane built in flight. We are all intensely aware of the challenges this presents but we often overlook the potential opportunities, writes Sara Gingold.
The 2017/18 NDIS Price Guides are hot off the press. Evie outlines what you need to know about this long anticipated update.
