The National Disability Sector provide vital support services to people with disability and their families. Did you know that there are currently over 4 million Australians who have a disability? The National Disability Services (NDS) is Australia's peak industry body for non-government disability service organisations.
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) ensures the delivery of greater choice and control for participants – people with disability and their families. With the NDIS now gradually rolling across the country it is seeing a huge expansion of the disability sector. Within the next five years, it is estimated that the NDIS will provide $22 billion in funding a year to an estimated 500,000 Australians aged under 65.
