How the NDIS is faring for not-for-profit service providers

Not-for-profit Achieve Australia says the National Disability Insurance Scheme will have a long-lasting impact on the organisation and its clients. Anne Bryce is bringing the service provider’s perspective on NDIS to IPAA 2015.

The National Disability Insurance Scheme represents a paradigmatic shift that will revolutionise the disability marketplace, giving people with a disability the opportunity to be consumers with real choice, says Anne Bryce, CEO of not-for-profit community organisation Achieve Australia.

Achieve Australia has provided services and support since 1952 for people with a disability to achieve a life that is meaningful and valued. It supports people with disability to live independently in new or existing accommodation; find fulfilling work and develop work skills, and; learn and participate, by promoting and fostering greater community inclusion.

Anne Bryce spoke with IPAA about how the organisation is preparing for the NDIS rollout and what it may mean for its clients.
