Achieve backs campaign recognising teams who support NDIS participants

Print this article

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) was designed to make it easier for people with disability to build a team of support around them. National Disability Services (NDS) created the Teamwork Works campaign to help the public better understand this important collaboration.

NDS is the peak organisation representing disability service providers across Australia. The Teamwork Works campaign puts people with disability and the workers who support them at centre of a national conversation about protecting the integrity of the NDIS as Australia approaches a Federal Election. 

The campaign wants all political parties to be aware of how the NDIS enables people with disabilities and their families to create a team of support critical to their ability to get the most out of life. Teams include support workers and a range of other professionals such as physiotherapists and speech therapists.

When you weaken the NDIS, the team stops working - Teamwork Works campaign.


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.

Achieve was part of early discussions that lead to the creation of Teamwork Works and we continue to support the campaign.
