How It Works

If you work within the disability sector in NSW and would like guidance on the ongoing changes to the NDIS the Business Centre is here to help you with business advice, education, mentoring and expert specialised business support. If you're starting up a business, new to the industry, or a medium to large organisation - you will find value in this program.

How It Works

You will gain access to business support from industry experts who have been operating under the reform since 2013 when it was trialled in the Newcastle area. During this time, the Business Centre has learnt a lot about the reform, the current changes in the industry and how businesses can learn to be agile and strong to adapt to the changes in the sector. We have an extensive network of innovators in the sector who you can access along with business advisory services and events.

  • NDIS Toolbox

    We will introduce you to the specialised tools designed for the disability sector to help you assess your business strategy.

  • Business Health check

    Our Advisors will work with you to assess where the pain points are in your business or idea and identify areas for improvement.

  • Business Roadmap

    Focus on immediate challenges, market placement, vision and purpose.


You will be paired with one of our expert Advisors to help you improve your business. Our Advisors are qualified and experienced in running their own business. Meet our Advisors.
