Should you register to be an NDIS provider

Andrea Simpson, ARTS HUB [19th March 2018]

ArtsHub recently attended an in-depth discussion about the NDIS, where the pros and cons of being a NDIS provider were discussed.

If you are an artist working as a sole trader, or a small to medium organisation providing accessible arts programs, you may want to consider whether registering for the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is the right thing for you.

Presented by ArtsWest and supported by Maribyrnong City Council, the event: Arts & being a NDIS Provider: To Register or Not to Register,  was designed to help sole traders and small to medium organisations better understand the process of becoming a registered NDIS provider.

The event, held at Footscray Art Centre, was led by PfA Consults' Wayne Pfeiffer, who has over 20 years of experience in the social sector, including direct experience with the NDIS through his consultancy work in the Barwon Trial Site.

‘You need to have a number of things in place if you want to be an NDIS provider, it’s like any business,’ said Pfeiffer.
