An extra 90,000 workers will be required nationally as spending on disability almost quadruples thanks to the NDIS. It is estimated that one in every five new jobs created in Australia will be in the disability support sector. VMCH Disability Services is part of an innovative work-placement program for students who hope to work in disability. The pilot program, called the Disability Sector Capacity Building Project, will provide disability work placements for about 30 students at its lifestyle and accommodation services that support people with disability until the end of this year.
