The Australian Government is inviting applications in an open process to apply to deliver projects under the NDIS Jobs and Market Fund, which contributes to the Department of Social Services Outcome 3: Disability and Carers over three years from 2018-19 to 2020-21.
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a significant social and economic policy reform representing one of the largest job creation opportunities in Australia. Achieving choice and control for participants requires a well-functioning market of NDIS providers, from which empowered NDIS participants are able to choose quality services that meet their needs. To support this vision, the NDIS workforce needs to grow by approximately 90,000 full-time equivalent workers to support 460,000 participants at full scheme.
The objective of the JMF is to support the growth of the NDIS provider market and workforce in capacity and capability to meet the needs of NDIS participants.
