People with access requirements could be your customers so it is important you consider how they can access your business.

What is the NDIS?
The NDIS is the National Disability Insurance Scheme. It is a new way of delivering funding, which makes sure that you, the person living with disability, receives the right funding to get the supports and services important to you.
Even though the NDIS is a national system, the WA NDIS is slightly different. The WA-system still adheres to the 11 key principles of the NDIS but will be delivered locally in Western Australia, not in the Eastern States.
This will aim to give WA residents the chance to benefit from the best bits of the national system, while still dealing with Local Coordinators based in their community.
You can find out more about the WA NDIS via the Disability Services Commission (DSC) website here.
Download the NDIS Toolkit, which helps guide individuals with disability and their support network to effectively plan for the NDIS and the support they need.
