The Federal Government has commenced work on a workforce strategy for the NDIS by commissioning a report into workforce issues. National Disability Services has been contracted to deliver the report. The report will focus on three key areas:
Supporting and retaining the existing workforce;
Ensuring workforce supply to support people with disability into the future; and
Building the capacity of the workforce to adapt to the new funding model of person-centred choice under the NDIS.
The final report is to be delivered to the Government in August 2014.
