Disability Workforce Hub

Connecting people, skills and jobs in the disability sector.

 

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) will transform how disability care is delivered. It is designed to support the needs of people with a permanent and significant disability.

The NDIS provides more choice and control over how, when and where supports are provided. The NDIS will roll out for 18-64 year olds in the Yorke and Mid North region from the 1st of January 2018.

Demand for disability services in the Yorke and Mid North region is expected to grow from 646 clients to around 1,900 participants under the NDIS (an increase of 194 per cent). To meet the demand for these services under the Scheme, the local workforce in the Yorke and Mid North region is estimated to grow from 150-200 full time workers to 650-800.

The Disability Workforce Hubs in the Yorke and Mid North are an important component to help secure a sufficient and diverse workforce supply as the region moves towards full implementation of the NDIS. They will operate as a ‘one-stop-shop’ model for organisations, existing workers and job seekers looking for support and assistance across the disability sector. The Hubs will contribute to building workforce capacity and capability, ensuring local people are employed and help South Australian employers secure skilled and experienced staff.

Aspirational Employment Modelling Report

Request for Quote (RFQ): Y&MN Disability Sector Aspirational Employment Model

RDAYMN’s intent for this project is to identify and address areas of market failure in the supply of labour into the emerging NDIS / disability sector landscape. To achieve this, the Aspirational Employment Model will need an element not found in the other models – the capacity to identify and recruit unemployed and underemployed persons in the region, who are willing and available to provide support services within their local communities. The model must match demand for NDIS services with available workers.

The Sustainable Aspirational Model resulting from this project will seek to build on the strengths of regional communities, to pool local resources, and support the delivery of the best possible services for NDIS recipients. Download further information here.
