The NDIS will increase the number of Victorians with disability receiving support. After it's rolled-out across Victoria there will be 25,000 more Victorians receiving disability supports than before the NDIS.
Under the NDIS, participants can choose and control the supports and services they need. This means disability support providers will need to consider if they want to move to new arrangements:
- block funding changing to individualised funding
- funding is provided after services are delivered
The NDIS brings an increase in demand for support and services. This will mean more opportunities for people wanting to work in disability services. To read more about the changing workforce and opportunities, visit
Existing funding arrangements with disability service providers in Victoria will continue during the transition.
