ABOUT THE PROJECT

The NDIS Workforce Research Project is a project led by WorkAbility Qld and funded by Jobs Queensland.

Research investigates the skills shortages, impacts and themes within disability workforce following the NDIS rollout in 2016 across Ipswich, Toowoomba, Brisbane North, Brisbane South, Townsville and Mackay. 

A report has been released for each region that captures the first set of key findings, data analysis and presents case studies conducted with NDIS service providers, sole providers, plans managers and self-managed participants.
