The partners in the community (PITC) program helps us deliver services in local communities.
We partner with experienced and qualified organisations with strong local knowledge and understanding of the needs of people with disability or developmental delay.
Partners deliver early childhood (EC) and local area coordination (LAC) services linking people with disability to the NDIS, and to community and mainstream services.
PITC Partners support over 70% of NDIS participants.
Funding awarded to partners to deliver the program in FY 2019/20 was approximately $525 million.
Market Engagement Information Paper
Our Market Engagement Information Paper gives an overview of the future partner program and asks for feedback from organisations who may be interested in partnering with the NDIA through the PITC program, and the broader sector.
We want to understand what interested organisations think about:
- extension of PITC Partner support into some remote communities
- ways to improve the delivery of services for specialist cohorts
- proposed funding model to support flexible response to participant needs
- other general feedback relating to this information paper.
Interested organisations can review the information in this paper and give written feedback through an online feedback form .
Please give your feedback by 19 November 2021.
We’ll publish a summary of your feedback later in the year.
Online engagement sessions
You can also show your interest to come to one of our online engagement sessions.
From 1 November, we’re holding online sessions with interested organisations to get feedback on the proposed funding model, extending partner coverage to remote areas and increasing specialisation of services for the PITC program.
Registrations for these sessions are open until 24 October 2021, and we’ll send you an invite with links to access the sessions by 29 October 2021.
We may use your feedback to develop the future PITC Program and PITC Program sourcing activity in 2022.
Your feedback won’t affect your application to any future PITC Program sourcing activity.
