Economic viability remains one of the main concerns of disability service providers in the current reform context. So what strategies can we use to remain sustainable?

In this webinar, Siobhain Simpson will share the key drivers of financial performance in the disability sector based on analysis of the data collected through the StewartBrown June Disability Services Financial Benchmark.

This data includes detailed financial and supporting data from 51 participating organisations who provide services to 26,646 National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) participants across Australia.

She will also discuss how these insights intersect with SCHADS payroll compliance audits, highlighting key overpayments and identifying costly shift permutations that can be avoided. This discussion aims to equip your organisation with strategies to remain sustainable against the backdrop of ongoing cost increases and price stagnation in the sector.
