Disability Services Fighting to Stay Afloat

Published

Disability providers are struggling to meet the needs of their clients under the National Disability Insurance Scheme, according to a new report that warns the sustainability of the sector is at risk.

The Centre for Social Impact’s (CSI) latest report examined National Disability Services’ Annual Market Survey and found the disability sector continued to be characterised by disruption due to the NDIS rollout.

It said the financial position of many providers was becoming more precarious, noting that compared to previous years more providers were operating at a loss – 28 per cent compared to 21 per cent in 2016.

CSI research director, Associate Professor Gemma Carey, told Pro Bono News more market gaps would develop if providers dropped out of the scheme because they could not run a sustainable business.
