NDIS Simple Financial Management is an online training program designed to support providers operating in an NDIS environment to understand the financial levers that underpin sustainability of their organisation.

This series acknowledges that support leaders “signed up to make a difference – not a profit”. It also acknowledges that they are busy people who tend to focus on the urgent because they don’t always have time for the important. The series of webinars explores key financial levers and provide simple worked examples, questions, models and templates.

Explores cash flow and working capital in the context of NDIS transition, and for many other projects and purposes.
