Employment outcomes - participants, their families and carers

Increased participation in the workforce for people with disability and their families and carers produces benefits for the individuals participating, as well as for the wider Australian economy. The analysis presented here investigates the employment experience of NDIS participants and their families and carers, including factors associated with positive employment outcomes.

Participant employment outcomes

The analysis looks at:

  • Baseline employment levels for participants entering the Scheme in 2016-17 and 2017-18.
  • NDIS participants and the Disability Support Pension (preliminary data linkage results).
  • Employment goals in participant plans.
  • The one year longitudinal change in employment outcomes for people who entered the Scheme in 2016-17 and have been in the Scheme for one year.
  • Key drivers of employment success.
  • Some preliminary results on provider performance relative to employment outcomes.

Family/carer employment outcomes

The analysis looks at:

  • Baseline employment levels for families and carers of participants entering the Scheme in 2016-17 and 2017-18.
  • The one year longitudinal change in employment outcomes for families and carers of participants who entered the Scheme in 2016-17 and have been in the Scheme for one year.
  • Key drivers of employment success for families and carers of participants aged 0 to 14.
