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.

A combination of human rights, choice, control and finance underpins most of the key changes that disability providers need to respond to under the NDIS marketplace.

Most support leaders are already well-acquainted with the choice, control and human rights elements to the NDIS. However, many are not as well acquainted with how their decisions impact their client’s finances and their organisations outcomes.

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.

Learning outcomes:

This series will explore key financial levers and provide simple worked examples, questions, models and templates, focused on:

  • Understanding how individual and grouped inclusion supports work financially
  • Understanding how client choice may impact financial outcomes
  • Understanding how staffing structure may impact financial outcomes
  • Understanding how organisational structure may impact financial outcomes
  • Understanding how the number of support hours delivered may impact financial outcomes
  • Understanding how available working capital may impact the rate of change required in NDIS transition
  • Building a practical financial and operational toolkit for support leaders in the short, medium and long term
  • Empowering informed, timely and strategic choices by coalface leadership
