How is the Disability Sector Faring?

The National Disability Services’ (NDS) Annual Market Survey has become one of the most important resources for understanding the state of the Australian disability sector, its challenges and opportunities.

A key driver for this research was the introduction of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) and the substantial restructuring of individual organisations. This research is intended to identify risks, monitor change and identify any consequences within the disability sector.

The Annual Market Survey provides insight into service provider perceptions of the NDIS, the operating environment for the sector and financial sustainability.
