With over 600 responses last year, the NDS Annual Market Survey is the definitive survey for the sector. It is not only utilised by NDS in its advocacy work and to inform sector development, but is also widely read by governments and reported on by media outlets across Australia.
The survey provides sector leaders the opportunity to comment on:
- The range and volume of services offered
- Strategic priorities
- The policy and operating environments
- Future expectations
Key findings will be reported in the State of the Disability Sector Report at the CEOs’ Meeting in Sydney on 20 and 21 November, as well as in other research papers.
This year, we are combining the Annual Market Survey with the Workforce Wizard data collection/benchmarking for the first time. Like the Annual Market Survey, the Workforce Census provides unique insights into the disability sector.
All NDS members have received a link by email from Acting CEO, David Moody.
The survey closes on 27 September.
The NDIA is also engaging service providers in a feedback exercise through the provider portal. NDS was not made aware that this was occurring at the same time as the NDS Annual Market Survey, but we encourage members to share their views with the NDIA about how they could improve communications, or any other matters.
