NDIS Compliance and Plan Management
Made Easy

We transform your experience as National Disability Insurance Scheme service providers and funding recipients to overcome compliance and plan management pressures and maximise benefits.

Who We Serve

We provide services to disability service providers as well as to participants or funding recipients.

Service Providers

  • New Organisations Entering the Disability Sector Requiring NDIS Registration

    • Sector advice on start-up opportunities, service selection and establishment.

    • Application for NDIS registration and Self-Assessment on how you will meet multiple outcomes for up to 20 policy areas (vary depending on the services you plan to provide). As you are not likely to have policies and practices developed at this stage, you are probably struggling to understand the onerous questions. Let Facilitrade with its 100% success rate in this area assist you.
  • Existing Providers Moving into NDIS and Requiring to Register

    As an existing disability service provider, you may have some policies and practices established. However, do these meet the high NDIS Practice Standards? Are you ready with all relevant processes and documents for the mandatory audit? Let Facilitrade with its 100% success rate, help you to demystify these standards, update your relevant documents and meet the new national Quality and Safeguard Framework and assist you with the registration process.
  • Existing Providers Needing to Renew NDIS Registration

    To remain registered to provide a class of supports you need to renew your NDIS registration every 3 years. This involves an application with a detailed Self-Assessment against NDIS Practice Standards, updating your policies and relevant documents and an audit. While you focus on running your business, let Facilitrade, with its excellent track record, relieve you of the burden and time commitment.
  • Providers Requiring to Meet NDIS Audit Standards

    To be registered to provide support services, once you submit your application you must be assessed by an approved quality auditor to ensure you are set up to meet NDIS Practice Standards across up to 20 groups of outcomes (vary depending on the support services you plan to provide). Facilitrade can relieve you of this burden so you can focus on your business.
  • Fully Operational Organisations with a Single Outlet Requiring Governance Advice and Training for Continuous Compliance

    • As an NDIS registered provider you are required to ensure compliance on an ongoing basis with up-to-date policies, procedures and multiple supporting collateral to ensure and respect the rights of participants, prevent harm and respond appropriately if harm occurs. Facilitrade advices and/or prepares these materials so that your organisation is audit proof and compliant in meeting the outcomes and NDIS Practice Standards.

    • You are also held accountable for quality and safeguarding policies to promote a safe and skilled workforce with the right capabilities and attitudes. To this end Facilitrade assists in formulating policies to suit the size and type of your organisation.
  • Fully Operational Organisations with Multiple Outlets Requiring Governance Advice and Training for Continuous Compliance

    If you are an organisation managing several service outlets in multiple locations are you in complete control of your NDIS reporting and compliance obligations? Are you struggling to consolidate disparate forms of reports, outcomes, schedules and reporting time frames across your franchised organisations or outlets? Is this process cost and time efficient for you? If not, let Facilitrade assist you to simplify and ensure consistency across outlets and remove the barriers that hinder positive participant and provider experiences.
