About this Hub

The NDIS offers a new way of providing individualised support for people with disability, their families and their carers by giving them more choice on what supports they need, and how they are provided.

If you work for a disability service provider, your employer is likely to have already undertaken the preparations needed to operate under the NDIS. If you are providing services as a sole trader or in a private practice, it is critical to understand the NDIS market.

We know that it is sometimes hard to find the information you need, so we have done the hard work for you! We have worked with accountancy and consultancy firm Nexia Australia to collate publicly available information and resources on the basics of working under the NDIS. The Hub will cover several topics like quality & safeguarding, registering as NDIS provider, price guides, invoicing and insurance.  

How to Use this Hub

Each section includes:

  • Summary of topics covered in each section (Free to access)
  • Link to downloadable handbooks  for sole traders / private pracitioners on a range of NDIS topics (Free for NDP 'Sole Trader' members)

We want to be as collaborative as possible in developing this Hub. If you wish to contribute some relevant resources or information to this Hub, or perhaps you're interested in leading or joining a Community of Practice for sole traders, email This email address is being protected from spambots.
