NDIS – An Introduction for providers

[Music plays] (Narrator) Welcome to the updated National Disability Insurance Scheme, or NDIS, Provider Toolkit. You can view the Toolkit on your computer or mobile phone. The Provider Toolkit is a resource designed for organisations and individuals who want to learn more about working with the NDIS. We’ve divided the Toolkit into seven sections that follow the typical provider pathway, from learning about the NDIS through to delivering and getting paid for services. The steps on this pathway are reflected in the sections in the Provider Toolkit. There are seven short videos, like this one, that briefly explain what you will find in each section of the Toolkit. Each section of the Toolkit has a series of sub-headings that you can view from a drop-down menu at the top of the home page. There’s also a Key Resources section with important documents and step by step guides to help with your registration, and a Help and Support section with FAQs, Hot Topics and contact details for further assistance. If you’re new to the NDIS and want to become a registered provider, review each section in this Toolkit to make sure you understand the NDIS and how it affects you. The Readiness Checklist in Section Two includes a self-assessment of whether you’re ready to start the registration process. If you’re ready to register, go straight to the Registration Checklist in Section Three to get the ball rolling. If you’re already a registered provider and need information about a particular topic, go straight to the section you need, or use the search bar at the top right of the screen. If you’re completely new to the NDIS or you are training new staff, the Provider Toolkit has some Online Learning Activities. These are learning tools that cover all the information in Sections One to Seven in bite-sized tutorials. They also contain videos and tests that provide you with all the information you need to register with the NDIS. You can find these at the bottom of the homepage or in the menu. You can give us feedback on this Toolkit by using the Feedback button on the homepage. Wherever you are in the provider pathway, we hope this Toolkit helps you understand the NDIS better, and what you have to do to make it a success. [Music plays]
