Supporting a growing disability market

The delivery of the NDIS relies on there being a market of adequate size, quality and innovation to ensure participants can readily access the support they need and exercise choice and control.

The NDIA will work to support a range of stakeholders such as participants, providers, the Department of Social Services (), and states and territories to ensure that the market is of sufficient scale at a national and local level for participants to utilise their plans and achieve their goals.

This Chapter describes key activities undertaken by the Agency in 2016-17 to support the growing disability market through:

  1. improving the provider experience, including through registration;
  2. establishing the NDIA as market steward through the Market Approach, market position statements and pricing controls; and
  3. promoting innovation through housing and Assistive Technology.
