Submission: NDIS Workforce Inquiry

Publication date: 
April 2020

ACTCOSS has made a submission to the Joint Standing Committee on the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) in response to its NDIS Workforce Inquiry.

To ensure workforce development policy between the Commonwealth and Territory is complementary and coordinated, we commend the findings in the ACT Community Services Industry Workforce Data and Community Needs Analysis report.

We also highlight that workforce policy aimed at improving skills, retention, and capability in the one particular sector must not be done to the detriment of other community service sectors.

Edited 25 Sep 2020: ACTCOSS also provided evidence related to our submission at a hearing organised by the Joint Standing Committee on the NDIS where we took questions on notice. Our response to these questions on notice is also linked below.
