The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is changing the way disability services providers do business. Organisations are transforming their service offerings and business systems to meet the needs and requirements of people with disabilities.

Through our research we have found four key strategic areas for industry development in this changing business environment. They include a focus on supply chains, the labour market, technology and capital. CSIA has chosen these areas to stretch the thinking of organisations beyond individual success to collective effort for industry development.

CSIA, with the support of the Department of Social Services, NDIS Jobs and Market Fund Round 1, has secured resources to focus on the capital component of these strategic areas.  

This work is another way that CSIA is advancing the Community Services Industry through doing business better.

Building Financial Resilience

The first phase of this project is a series of workshops across Queensland to learn more about increasing your organisational financial capability and access to capital for growth and transformation.

The two-hour facilitated workshop topics include:

  • Understanding how your organisation can potentially use alternative forms of capital to deliver new initiatives, programs and services.  
  • Effectively leveraging existing assets. 
  • Overcoming potential barriers to accessing finance. 
  • Investment in improving operational efficiency, governance, process and systems. 
  • And more!

NDIS Pooled Funds Project

Together we can build a collective investment model for disability service providers. Through some of our preliminary investigations, we have found that many organisations are seeking capital for cash flow to invest in business development. Organisations are often experiencing barriers to the access of capital needed to grow.

This is something we want to change in this Industry-led opportunity.
