The Australian Government is supporting Western Australians with disability with today’s announcement of grants to enable the growth of the NDIS workforce.
Minister for the National Disability Insurance Scheme, Stuart Robert, today announced the first group of projects to receive funding to encourage NDIS market and workforce growth – helping to deliver the world-leading scheme.
The NDIA has released the results of one of the largest surveys of people with disability, their families and carers in Australian history – showing the NDIS has significantly improved people’s day-to-day lives.
Over the coming weeks, the NDIA is making changes to the NDIS myplace portal to improve the process where there may be a gap between new and old participant plans.
The Australian Government, through the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), is investing $19.6 million to fund innovative projects that will provide greater opportunity for people with disability to participate in work. Minister for the National Disability Insurance Scheme, Stuart Robert, said 64 organisations will receive funding through the Economic Participation of People with Disability grants, as part of the Information, Linkages and Capacity Building (ILC) program.
The first round of NDIS data has been released as part of the Australian Government’s commitment to demonstrate full transparency of the NDIS.
