This research was initiated in response to an expressed need amongst policy makers for a better understanding of both the operation of the SDA program and the attitudes of industry to investment and participation in that program. The research builds a deeper understanding of Australia’s National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), established ‘to provide reasonable and necessary supports to people with a permanent and significant disability’ (NDIA c. 2016). The NDIS was developed due to documented inadequacies in support provision for Australians with disability, which meant that many people, especially those on low incomes, lacked access to the level of funding, services, housing and support required for them to live a decent life (Productivity Commission 2011; Hinton 2006).
