Disability Support Providers

The evaluation team invites employers and employees (including self-employed operators) of disability support providers to take part in the evaluation.

You can do this in two ways.

  1. Take part in national conversations about important issues in the evaluation. You can do this by attending consultation events run by the State Experts in the evaluation sites. For information about these events sign up for updates via our Home page or regularly check our News page.
  2. Respond to our large scale surveys of the disability and the mainstream providers and services sectors. The surveys aim to assess the impact of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) on the sectors, supports and the workforce.

The surveys will contain questions to examine the impact of the NDIS on support capacity, changes in employment practices and issues affecting workforce recruitment and retention.

They will also examine issues relating to the impact of the NDIS on the sector, responses to the NDIS (e.g. innovative practices, changes in skills or training requirements, changed approaches to leadership or unintended consequences) and issues for the workforce arising from the implementation of the NDIS.

The surveys will be distributed in hard copy with the option to complete online.
