INTRODUCING INNOVATE2015

National Disability Services is pleased to announce Innovate2015. A business innovation program for disability service providers to develop future capability for an increasingly diverse world.

In a world of uncertainty, changing funding models, and increasing diversity, disability services will need to think and operate differently in order to survive and thrive.

Innovate2015 explores how.

With the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) set to make a transformative difference for people with disability, including those from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, sustainable business models and customer-orientated market strategies will be key to adaptability for Australia's disability sector.

data suggests disability services access rates for people from CALD with disability to be between 5 - 10%. This means that between 50 - 80% of people from CALD backgrounds with disability are missing out on services
