AHPA receives grant funding to support allied health NDIS registration

Published 27 June 2019, revised 14 July 2019

Allied Health Professions Australia (AHPA) is pleased to announce that Minister for the National Disability Insurance Scheme, Stuart Robert, has confirmed AHPA as one of ten organisations that will receive funding to help NDIS providers meet the new regulatory requirements required for NDIS registration.

With Victoria, Queensland, Tasmania ACT and the Northern Territory all shifting to the new Quality and Safeguarding Framework from July 1st this year, it is essential to ensure that providers understand the registration process and are confident about their ability to meet audit requirements. AHPA and our allied health profession members have advocated heavily around the need to ensure that the registration process doesn’t act as a barrier for providers to enter the marketplace and that participants are able to access services regardless of whether they are NDIS- or self-managed.

With the announcement of the grant, AHPA will now begin work with our member associations and the broader allied health provider community to begin developing practical tools and resources to help providers successfully register as NDIS providers. We will also aim to work closely with other grant recipients to ensure that we are aligning work wherever appropriate.

Our intention will be to provide regular updates about our work via our website so we encourage you to check back regularly.
