Why kickstart self-employed
NDIS providers?
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provides an opportunity for people with a disability to have choice and control over the supports 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.

My location isn't listed
NDIS Kickstart will run in other locations in 2018.
