Disability Insurance - for agencies

Operating within individualised funding, understanding disability insurance, reporting on outcomes, person centred and family centred practice, operating under the NDIS

Across Australia, trials for the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) are now operating. The move to an insurance based model of funding, and the associated use of individualised funding, is a significant change for the disability and mental health sectors. While access to funding for supports will be life-changing for individuals and their families, changes to how supports are funded will also have significant impacts for agencies. Workforce management, marketing, business practices, relationships between providers and individuals/families, service models and cash flow are just some of the areas in which the NDIS will have significant impacts.
