Overview

Survive & thrive in the NDIS
The Productivity Commission are conducting a review of the NDIS scheme. The review will consider funding arrangements with states and territories, cost pressures including wages, potential efficiencies and any impact on mainstream services. These are presenting as the most pressing challenges for providers.
