Disability Workforce Hub

Connecting people, skills and jobs in the disability sector.

The National Disability Insurance Scheme will help South Australians with permanent disability get the support they want so they can live the life they choose.

Through the NDIS services for people with disability will increasingly be provided by non-government organisations, and are likely to cover a wider range than they have in the past. From 1 October 2017 the NDIS will be available in the Limestone Coast and demand for services is expected to grow from 650 clients to around 1300 participants. To meet the demand for these services under the scheme the local workforce is expected to increase from 150 FTE workers to around 400 FTE workers by 2019. 

To assist in meeting this workforce demand, the South Australian Government has funded a Disability Workforce Hub in the Limestone Coast region. The Hub will operate as a ‘one-stop-shop’ model for organisations, existing workers and job seekers looking for support and assistance across the disability sector. The Hub will contribute to building workforce capacity and capability, ensuring local people are employed and help South Australian employer’s secure skilled and experienced staff.
