The financial viability of the NDIS is intrinsically linked to increasing economic participation and achieving better employment outcomes for people with disability and their carers. So where are the opportunities for your organisation to develop evidence based, innovative employment services for NDIS participants?
This workshop will provide a comprehensive overview of the current disability employment funding landscape, mapping where NDIS meets existing Disability Employment Services (DES/JA) and exploring the emerging opportunities for truly innovative service design.
Topics we will cover include:
- What the NDIS will fund in employment (and for whom)?
- Who can become a provider of NDIS employment supports?
- Addressing low expectations of employment outcomes for people with disability
- School Leaver Employment Supports (SLES)
- Global Best Practice & Case Studies
- Strategies for success and first mover advantage
- Marketing your service to NDIS participants and families
FEEDBACK FOR DSC's NDIS forums
Don't just take our word for it. Over 2,500 people have now attended a DSC NDIS workshop. Here's what previous participants had to say:
The word ‘respite’ is now considered passé, but the support still exists in the NDIS - if you know how to ask for it. Sara looks at a Carers Australia report that explores how this small change in language is massively disadvantaging some families.
Troublingly, estimates show that only 89% of people with disability in Australia will not be eligible for the NDIS. Sara explores how providers can support people will find themselves ineligible but still very much in need of support.
The Productivity Commission has just released its report investigating the Scheme costs. From an initial review of the document there are some really important findings that reflect the majority of challenges the rollout has encountered to date.
The Productivity Commission has today released its position paper on the NDIS Costs. Brent Woolgar outlines the highlights
The NDIS now has a board with strong corporate credentials, albeit without lived experience of disability. But it won’t matter much since it’s still ministers calling the shots. Luke Bo’sher explores the NDIA’s governance trap.
The Productivity Commission (PC) has released the Issues Paper for the Review of NDIS Costs. As Brent Woolgar explains, it’s thrown just about every contentious NDIS issue up in the air for consideration.
