National Disability Services report projects economic benefits of the NDIS

Two people gardening with the text 'Economic benefits of the NDIS'


I need to know this because:
  • The NDIS will support 25,000 to 40,000 people with disability to find work
  • It will support 34,000 carers to return to the workforce
  • Increased additional taxes and reduced income support from the NDIS will save the Commonwealth Budget $1.5B-$1.9 billion pa
  • GDP gain from increased employment of people with disability and carers will equate to $18-$23 billion pa in 2015 dollars

NDS has released a paper detailing the projected benefits of the national NDIS rollout. Titled 'An Estimate of the Economic Effects of the Implementation of the National Disability Insurance Scheme,' the findings in the report are based on economic modelling using data from an Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) survey of over 75,000 people with disability and their carers. Representing one 300th of the Australian population, this is the largest sample survey ever conducted by the ABS.

Among the findings in the report is the projection that, when fully implemented in mid-2019, the NDIS will lead to between 25,000 and 40,000 new jobs for people with significant disability, as well as approximately 34,000 carers returning to the workforce.
