More roadblocks removed for NDIS participants to move into work

New and practical changes to help National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) participants with career aspirations to find work are kicking in next month, the Federal Government has announced.

“The first change is that NDIS participants will have easier access to employment support funding in NDIS plans by being able to activate employment supports as soon as they find a job, instead of waiting for the next plan review.”

“Local Area Coordinators and planners will be given fresh training and support materials so they can better discuss employment options and build the confidence of participants seeking work.”

“The National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) will host a national webinar this month to inform NDIS participants about how they can include employment in their individual plans,” Ms Henderson said.
