National Disability Insurance Scheme
Building the capacity of the ACT disability sector workforce
National Disability Service (NDS) has commenced a project to grow the disability workforce in the ACT to be better positioned to meet the requirements of the NDIS. NDS will implement a Collective Impact approach to engage stakeholders to explore, choose and develop ways to strengthen the base of potential and existing workers who are aware of, positively disposed towards and capable to work in the disability sector. This project will run for two years to May 2019 and is funded under the Commonwealth’s NDIS Sector Development Fund. For information contact NDS at 02 6283 3208 or visit www.nds.org.au
