About the campaign
Teamwork Works is a campaign driven by the National Disability Services, the peak organisation representing many disability service providers across Australia. The campaign puts people with disability and the workers that support them at the front and centre of the national conversation. It aims to protect the integrity of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) by building awareness of its value to people with disability. Teamwork Works draws on research and economic modelling to quantify the value of the NDIS while telling real, personal stories from individuals and teams in the sector to bring these benefits to life and drive home the importance of a strong NDIS. You can sign up to the campaign and learn more at teamwork.org.au.
Teamwork Works campaign roll-out
The campaign will be rolled out in two mutually-reinforcing lanes, which will:
- Show the benefits of a strong NDIS by celebrating the partnership between people with disability and their team-member(s) who support them.
- Call on all candidates in the lead-up to the Federal election to commit to the integrity of the scheme and to oppose moves that weaken the NDIS.
What Teamwork Works wants
Teamwork Works is calling on the Federal Government to deliver the 3 Ps:
- Proper Planning – so people with disability have the resources they need to build the right team for them.
- Fair and Independent Pricing – so providers can deliver the services people with disability need.
- Genuine Partnership – a real commitment from the Federal Government to work with participants and providers to build a scheme that delivers long-term support.
