Why kickstart self-employed
NDIS providers?
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provides people with a disability the opportunity to have choice and control over the supports and service providers they access to enhance their lives.

Having real choice over supports, products and services requires a vibrant selection of local service providers - business owners who are actively seeking to offer and deliver personalised and easily accessible services within their customers' community.

Big organisations will be trying to meet this need but, as a small provider, you will have more ability to respond to specific customer needs. This is your opportunity to specialise both in your area of expertise, and in your local community.
