“Opportunities for business to grow and expand their business with the NDIS”

 

From 1 July, the NBBCommonwealth Government rolled out the National Disability Insurance Scheme, which will support a better life for hundreds of thousands of Australians with a significant and permanent disability and their families and carers.

The NDIS provides information and referrals, support to access community services and activities, personal plans and supports over a lifetime. It is the new way of providing individualised support for people with disability, their families and carers by allowing people with disability to choose who they work with. This increased demand and choice of who people engage, provides growth opportunities for businesses.

Come and hear about the opportunities there are for your business and how your business can become registered as an NDIS provider.
