National Disability Services has released the State of the Disability Sector Report 2017. The report shows the current state of operation of the sector and potential impacts of National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) implementation. The report asserts that most disability service providers are currently under intense pressure and that the scale of the NDIS presents a significant challenge for providers. Challenges highlighted in the report include providers bearing additional cost from inefficient NDIS processes, the difficulty in recruiting new staff, and a lack of working capital within the sector to support growth. To address these challenges and support the sector into the future, the report contains 12 proposals, including realistic NDIS pricing, more employment supports within NDIS plans, and increased local flexibility and responsiveness of decision-making in NDIS systems.
