The Australian Government has recognised the expertise and leadership of Parkinson’s NSW by awarding it a significant grant.
The purpose of the funding is to develop a program to support other organisations as they undertake the complex process of applying to become a Registered NDIS Service Provider.
Parkinson’s NSW successfully achieved registration as an NDIS Service Provider in 2019. The process was challenging and time-consuming and required significant resources.
Understanding what to do and how to do it was often unclear and presented barriers to reaching well-informed business decisions on managing risk, compliance, financial sustainability and quality considerations.
Under the grant, the Parkinson’s NSW Support for NDIS Providers project will develop resources and educational materials to help governance bodies and executives understand how they need to develop their business systems to comply with the NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission Rules.
Two target audiences will benefit from this project – Boards of Governance and senior management teams of service providers that wish to maintain their existing NDIS Registration, or organisations which may be thinking of registering to become an NDIS Approved Provider.
The Parkinson’s NSW project team is conducting consultations and seeking input from a variety of stakeholders about what information or assistance they require as they move along the NDIS Registration journey.
Parkinson’s NSW is already working with stakeholders seeking information on:
Being awarded this Grant is strong recognition that Parkinson’s NSW as the State Peak Body for the Parkinson’s community has the expertise to successfully complete the project.
If your organisation has questions, wants to make comments about your own registration experience, are seeking information or want to contribute to the development of resources, please contact the Parkinson’s NSW Project Team.
Telephone 02 8051 1900 and a Project Team member will respond promptly.
