Sixty-four organisations will receive grants of up to $30,000 from the Australian Government to help them get ready for a National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).
Parliamentary Secretary for Disabilities and Carers, Senator Jan McLucas said the NDIS Readiness Fund is part of the Australian Government’s $3.1 million investment to help Australian Disability Enterprises prepare for reform.
“A National Disability Insurance Scheme will significantly change how we deliver disability care and support across the country,” Senator McLucas said.
“We want all areas of the disability sector to be ready to make the change, including our Australian Disability Enterprises, which employ more than 20,000 Australians with disability."

LISA Comment: We ask, "What expectations, if any, were set on the funding?" Especially to ensure NDIS funded services are not just more of what we have now - especially not more of those by government direct services!
