Investigating the impact of NDIS market settings on participants with a psychosocial disability and providers

Pre-NDIS, psychosocial supports were delivered by a skilled workforce with specialist capability and competence to practice in ways that promote recovery, as well as identify and appropriately intervene to prevent relapse, psychiatric crises and suicide risk. The type of providers, workforce and nature of supports traditionally provided to people with a psychosocial disability is evolving under the NDIS.

This project will determine if differential market settings are needed to ensure providers are able to respond effectively, safely and viably to the unique needs of NDIS participants with a psychosocial disability.

You can have your say by completing one of two surveys that will gather information on market trends, issues and impacts on the delivery of NDIS supports to participants with a psychosocialdisability:

  1. Workforce survey – For workers providing direct support to NDIS participants with a psychosocial disability, and team leaders/supervisors of workers providing direct support to NDIS participants with a psychosocial disability.
  2. Provider survey  – For provider managers and above e.g. example executive/business development, area managers, human resources etc. Only one representative from each provider is required to complete this survey.

The Victorian Department of Health and Human Services is leading this work in partnership with other states and territories, the Commonwealth Government, the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) and the NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission.

The project findings will be reported to the Market Oversight Working Group who reports to the Disability Reform Council’s Senior Officials Working Group.
