NDIS Essential Issues: making employment a priority
14 Jul 2018
There is enormous scope to increase the employment of people with disability. The workforce
participation rate of Australians with disability is low (53%) and static. The workforce participation rate of
Australians with severe or profound disability actually fell between 2012 and 2015 - from 30% to 25%.
The NDIS cannot supply the full answer to this problem, but its potential to expand disability
employment is considerable.
