NORTH QUEENSLAND NDIS WORKFORCE PLAN
The North Queensland NDIS Workforce Action Plan was a strategy of WorkAbility Qld and was developed by the North Queensland WorkAbility Network in consultation with key stakeholders across the region.
The NDIS implementation in the region was likely to generate the need for at least an additional 800 full-time equivalent workers. This plan aimed to support the region in growing and skilling both the existing and future NDIS workforces to meet the needs of people with a disability across the region.
