Each quarter, the NDIS releases a report that provides an insight into active participants and service providers. The Q4 report was published last week.
The report is extensive, close to 600 pages, but here is a snapshot.
So, with the national roll-out of the NDIS complete, a significant increase in active participants and an ongoing increase in the average plan size, the demand for services is increasing. How is Auscare Support responding to this increase in demand?
Since 2015, Auscare Support has been growing exponentially. In the last quarter, our client numbers have continued to rise and so too has our team of employees and independent Support Coordinators.
At Auscare Support, we understand that we need to evolve just as the NDIS is. In order to maintain our high level of client service, we need to have a team of exceptional professionals, all with different skillsets, to ensure that NDIS participants are aware of the services we offer, that we recruit the right people to help our clients achieve their goals, to build their capacity and to exercise choice and control over the decisions that affect them. The common thread that binds our team is a collective resonance with Auscare Support’s mission to “empower great futures for our clients and their families.”
What does the future hold for Auscare Support?
With the steady increase in NDIS participants coinciding with the completion of the national roll-out of the NDIS, more and more NDIS participants are needing assistance to connect with service providers. Many are opting to have their NDIS funding Plan-managed, just over a third are funded for Support Coordination and there is also an ongoing demand to find support workers best suited to meet participants needs.
Auscare Support’s Plan Management, Support Coordination and Auscare + Mable partnership is available to help any NDIS participant looking to engage a service provider who is genuinely focused on their needs, not the bottom line.
Auscare Support is not one of the ten service providers currently receiving 62% of NDIS payments, but if you are looking for a more personal and client-focused provider, we are here to help. We hope to be able to continue to make a positive difference to both the lives of NDIS participants and their families and to make a contribution to an increase in plan utilisation rates in both existing and new service areas. The NDIS funding is there to support participants and our team will do everything they can to help them maximise their funding.
Auscare Support will continue to evolve. Stay tuned for some exciting announcements in October!
