The purpose of the NDIS is to provide reasonable and necessary support to people with a permanent and significant disability so that they may access the supports and services they need to assist in achieving their goals. Participants receive individual budgets and they choose providers to support them.
The NDIA is committed to sharing in-depth data to assist stakeholders to understand market activity.
The Market Dashboards are part of a series of publicly shared datasets released by the NDIA as part of the Agency’s the commitment to sharing more specialist in-depth data.
