Employment roadblocks ditched for NDIS participants

Published

Changes to help National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) participants find work kick in this month as the NDIS Participant Employment Taskforce clears the way for better employment outcomes.

“NDIS participants will have now have easier access to employment support funding in NDIS plans by activating employment supports as soon as they find a job, instead of waiting for the next plan review,” Social Services Minister, Paul Fletcher said.

The National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) will host a national hour-long interactive ‘Let’s Talk About Work’ webinar on February 21 to inform NDIS participants on how they can include employment in their individual plans. People on the webinar will hear from other participants about their experience of getting a job and having work as a goal in their NDIS plans. The webinar is free and includes Auslan interpretations and live captions. Content will be  recorded and posted on the NDIS website following the event.
