ACT to reap economic benefits of NDIS, report finds

The National Disability Insurance Scheme will create an “employment boom” in the ACT and add up to $367 million to the local economy, a report has found.

It found the NDIS in the ACT will support up to 800 people with a disability to find work, support about 660 carers to return to the workforce, create an “employment boom” of more than 1100 jobs, create extra jobs in the disability service sector and add up to $367 million to the territory’s gross state product.
