About the NDIS Success program

Consultant Dr Ellen Schuler standing in front of board room table presenting to clientsThere is a need for more NDIS services across Australia, particularly in regional, remote and rural communities and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. Whilst NDIS providers may already operate in and around these areas, a greater variety of services is required to meet the needs of individuals living within those communities.

The NDIS Success program aimed to support this need by giving participating individuals and organisations the tools and resources required to:

  • expand their service offering or adapt and scale current services
  • structure their business model to begin providing NDIS services
  • learn effective strategies within the NDIS market to ensure organisational sustainability
This program was funded by the Australian Government Department of Social Services. CBB’s Community Development Fund also contributed funds to the program.  It was free for participating organisations.

Organisations were invited to apply for a free six-month program of one to one support to prepare a pilot for a new NDIS service. The support focused on assisting organisations to develop a strong proposal for a new NDIS service that they can take to market in their community. Applications are now closed.
