NDIS national worker screening system


Worker Screening: What Providers Need to Know

Many providers DSC consults with have been asking about what the new NDIS national worker screening system will look like. We won’t know all the answers until it becomes operational next year but here is what we do know.


Why do we need a new system if we are already screening our workers?

The short answer is, not all clearances are equal.

Avoiding Support Coordinator Burnout


At DSC, we’ve been lucky enough to train over 1,000 Support Coordinators and Support Coordinators to be over the last few years. This experience has given us a really interesting look into the experience of organisations around the country and the chance to watch as similar challenges arise for providers at different stages of the NDIS rollout.
