What you need to know about becoming a NDIS provider
What is the NDIS?
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is the new way of providing support for Australians with disability, their families and carers.
The NDIS will help people under the age of 65 and who have a permanent and significant disability with the reasonable and necessary supports they need to enjoy an ordinary life. This means helping them achieve their goals such as greater independence, community involvement, employment and improved wellbeing.
Opportunity for Australian Businesses
With over 460,000 people expected to enter the Scheme across the country, exciting opportunities exist for providers looking to establish or grow in response to this new demand.
The NDIS marketplace is set to thrive and by full operation in 2019 will be worth an estimated $22 billion a year.

What you need to consider
There are several things to consider before applying to be a NDIS provider. These include who you’ll provide services to, the types of services and supports you’ll provide and whether your organisation can meet relevant quality and safeguard requirements.
How to Become a Registered NDIS Provider
Once you’re ready to proceed, you will need to understand the process for registering as a new provider. Until a national Quality and Safeguarding Framework takes effect from July 2019, this will depend on what State or Territory you are operating in and what type of services you will be delivering.
