The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) publishes a quarterly report, available on its website. The reports contain up to date information and breakdown of participants in each state as well as the funding or provision of supports by the NDIA in each jurisdiction.
Information provided in the NDIS Quarterly Reports supports findings produced in the six regional NDIS Workforce Research Project, published this year.
The research project led by WorkAbility Qld looks at the impact of the NDIS since its rollout in 2016 across Queensland and makes predictions and recommendations for the disability sector in each region.
