The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is the largest shake-up the Australian Disability sector has ever seen. With the power of choice in consumers' hands, the NDIS will drive value for money outcomes and social innovation. The scheme also creates significant opportunities for new and existing service providers across a range of industry sectors. It is anticipated that expenditure on disability support will rise to an estimated A$22 billion by 2019.
