One of the key trial sites for the NDIS was the Hunter region, and six years on they have learnt a lot.

In the complex operating environment of the NDIS avoiding pitfalls and costly mistakes is critical to the success and sustainability of organisations. Wouldn’t it be great if you could gain insights about the future business environment that you will operating in?

In 2016, CSIA took a field study trip to the Hunter region with Foundation members to gain insights and ideas as transition began in Queensland. The Hunter region was a trial site for the early rollout of the NDIS, six years on individuals and organisations are now operating in full scheme with at least three years extra accumulated experience than Queensland. This experience forms invaluable insight useful to helping us to think ahead and strategise for the future as the NDIS continues to be implemented in Queensland. 

Three years on CSIA will revisit these insights and ideas by hosting speakers from the NSW Hunter region in Brisbane. Six years into
their journey we will find out – What’s changed in this time? What are the learnings? How can this help you and your organisation as the
NDIS continues to be implemented? 

The program starts with a session with people with lived experience as they share their advice to organisations about what they want and
what will work. This offers the opportunity for market research unlike any other.

Other sessions include:

  • Future proofing your business through culture and knowing your numbers with David Hubbard from CINCH Financial Solutions
  • National Quality and Safeguarding – what you need to know with Hunter expert Chantelle Robards
  • Summer Foundation Hunter: A real-life case study with Dr Di Winkler, Founder and Chief of Research and Innovation
  • Different business models and the technology considerations with Robyn Kaczmarek.

CSIA has been delivering key events around the big issues facing the Community Services Industry including inclusion and workforce.
Participants have access to thought leaders, experts, people with lived experiences and key organisations around the latest research,
ideas and opportunities. The aim of all CSIA events is to contribute to supporting a strong, contemporary and sustainable industry.
