The Australian disability sector is experiencing the most significant reforms in its history which will involve substantial growth and transformation over the next decade. Gradual state and territory shifts towards individualised funding and support models for people with disability have been accelerated by the introduction of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) and actions documented in the National Disability Strategy 2010-2020.
National Disability Services (NDS) is assisting disability service providers to develop the organisational capability to operate in an NDIS environment. The Provider Toolkit (the Toolkit) has been developed to support organisations intending to become a registered service provider of the NDIS.
The Toolkit is a set of self-assessment exercises that focus on business practice required under the NDIS. The exercises are structured around seven domains or Seven Key Questions.
The Self-Assessment exercises are:
- The Self–Assessment Tool
A core component of the Toolkit, this allows you to assess and rate your organisation’s current state of transition toward the NDIS and plan for where it needs to be.
- The Key Financial Ratios Tool
These ratios will give you an insight into your organisation’s current disability revenue concentration, liquidity, debt and sustainability.
