NDIS forum on the Central Coast
12 December 2017
The NSW Government will help businesses on the Central Coast make the most of the rollout of the Commonwealth’s National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) as part of a $19 million statewide program.
An ‘NDIS Business Insights’ event will be held at Mercure Kooindah Waters Central Coast in Wyong on Wednesday 13th December from 9am – 11.30am.
Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast Scot MacDonald MLC said the NDIS is a once-in-a-generation reform to the sector that will almost double the NSW disability market to $6.8 billion by 2019.
“This event will help coach businesses on opportunities to tap into the multi-billion dollar NDIS market while supporting efforts to provide better disability support services,” Mr MacDonald said.
“The NSW Government is rolling out a $19 million Disability Sector Scale-Up (DSSU) program to help businesses and communities maximise NDIS opportunities.
“The program includes specialist advice for those wanting to provide services under the NDIS through our Business Connect service.”
The ‘NDIS Business Insights Panel’ event will feature a panel of guest speakers sharing their NDIS experiences and provide information and advice on a range of business matters.
“We are encouraging bold ideas for innovative business models to grow a strong, sustainable and high quality disability services market for NSW,” Mr MacDonald said.
“Examples of successful innovation in the sector will be presented at this event to encourage Central Coast businesses to think outside the box on how disability services can be delivered most effectively.
“The NSW Government is focused on building capacity particularly in rural and remote regions which may have been underserviced in the past.”
