3:50 PM Developing a Workforce Strategy Within the Changing Disability Sector: Preparing the Workforce For a Future Under the NDIS
It is critical for disability service providers to take a more strategic approach to workforce planning as they continue to go through a period of extreme change and transformation. The implementation of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) and increased client choice and control is not only fundamentally impacting all areas of the business, but is also impacting what is and will be required of the workforce into the future.
Cerebral Palsy Alliance (CPA) provides family-centred therapies, life skills programs, equipment and support for people living with cerebral palsy and their families. Employees are the organisation’s greatest asset in building a better future for its clients. This case study will explore the challenges and the opportunities facing CPA in preparing the workforce for a future under the NDIS.
