  • The NDIS will ensure better support for people with disabilities through workforce improvement.

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) will ensure that people with a disability, including those with psychosocial support needs, gain greater access to and choice and control over the services and support they receive.

As the NDIS will result in a significant increase in service and workforce demands, the key to its successful implementation will be having sustainable service providers and a stable, skilled and properly remunerated workforce.
