NDIS growth requires an investment plan

A new study from Curtin University’s Not-for-profit Initiative and National Disability Services’ Centre for Applied Disability Research will provide governments, disability service providers and the broader community with detailed information on the supply and sustainability of disability services in Australia.

This is the first report in an initial two-year study which will track the impact of the NDIS on the service sector as the reforms are implemented across Australia.

Chief Executive of National Disability Services (NDS) Dr Ken Baker said, “To deliver on its great promise to people with disability and their families, the NDIS needs a strong and dynamic service sector with the resources to invest in growth and change. New research released by Curtin University and NDS underlines the challenge ahead for organisations operating with tight margins and few spare resources.”.
