NDS is seeking feedback on the impact of NDIS market settings on providers who support participants with psychosocial disability. This feedback will contribute to a national multi-government project to determine whether differential market settings are needed to ensure providers are able to respond effectively, safely and viably to the unique needs of NDIS participants with a psychosocial disability.
The Victorian Department of Health and Human Services is leading this work in partnership with other states and territories, the Commonwealth Government, the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) and the NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission.
The project findings will be reported to a Market Oversight Working Group which reports to the Disability Reform Council’s Senior Officials Working Group.
The types of providers, workforces and supports traditionally provided to people with psychosocial disability has been evolving in the NDIS environment. This has resulted in emerging concerns about quality, safety and provider market viability. The Government is now seeking input to identify ways to improve market and workforce policies, strategy and interventions to optimise outcomes for this participant group.
NDS urges members to contribute to this project by:
1. Providing feedback to NDS, via email to or phone (03) 8341 4330; and
2. Completing a survey.
Only one representative from each provider is required to complete the provider survey.
The respondent may also wish to consult internally to ensure their responses represent a consistent view across the organisation.
3. Registering ASAP to attend a workshop in your state for the dates below:
