NDIS Overview - 2015
The Integrated Market, Sector and Workforce Strategy provides a vision of what a robust and mature National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) market will look like and how it will function. The strategy is also intended to provide guidance to the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) and Commonwealth and state and territory governments in implementing the NDIS to improve the lives of people with disability, their families and carers.
This strategy seeks to support the development of an NDIS market where people with disability exercise choice and control and have access to a full range of quality supports. It focuses on three key actors to achieve this vision: consumers, suppliers and the workforce.
Each is integral to the success of the NDIS. In recognition of this, the strategy centres on activities to:
  • enable people with disability to plan and develop goals for a life they value and to exercise choice and control over their supports
  • develop a diverse and sustainable range of suppliers
  • ensure there is a diverse and flexible workforce supply to support people with disability into the future.
This strategy adopts an overarching view, and will recognise and leverage existing work at the local or trial site level, the work being undertaken by state and territory jurisdictions, and work at a national level.
It is anticipated the strategy will be supported by the establishment of flexible and action-oriented Industry Advisory Groups to provide advice on specific issues and identify potential solutions to achieve market maturity.

  • Overview and the case for change
