Exploring the interface of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) and Disability Employment Services (DES) and the influence on employment outcomes for Australians with disabilities

Chief Investigator: Alexandra Devine

There is limited evidence on whether and how the NDIS/DES interface is functioning effectively to improve employment outcomes for Australian’s with disability. Understanding in this area is further complicated as the NDIS/DES interface intersects (and sometimes competes) with multiple Federal, State and Territory education and training, and, employment programs. This exploratory project will seek to understand stakeholder perspectives and concerns on the functioning and positioning of NDIS/DES interface within the broader education, training and employment sector. This project also aims to foster collaborative partnerships and research opportunities towards the improvement of employment outcomes for Australians with disability.
