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:
It’s no secret that people living in regional and remote communities are not receiving the best outcomes in the Scheme, but it doesn’t have to be this way. We explore 11 solutions to one of the biggest challenges facing the NDIS.
In our Ask an Expert series, we examine the minefield that is guardianship, Plan nominees, and supported decision making. Lee explores how we can balance these legal mechanisms with supporting people to make their own decisions.
That time of year is here again! The NDIA have released the new Price Guides, which will come into effect as of 1 July.
A new NDIS Price Guide is in effect as of 1 February 2019 and the changes that have been made are not exactly what we were expecting…
This explosive new Tribunal case sets precedents that could redefine how NDIS Participants travel. You might reasonably think you have heard everything that needs to be said about transport and the NDIS, but, as Sara explores, we have all been proved wrong.
In Part 2 of our series examining the explosive PM v NDIA case, Sara explores where the Tribunal fell on the Participant’s Core budget. The wide reaching case covers Activities of Daily Living, Consumables and Sustaining Informal Supports. It is not one to be missed.
The Administrative Appeals Tribunal is the ultimate testing ground for all things NDIS, which makes it extremely exciting when we see cases like PM v NDIS that cover an exceptional amount of ground. In the first of this two part series, Sara explores the exciting implications rulings from the case will have for providers and Participants.
