Guide for disability support providers
Guide by DSC for Australia’s National Disability Insurance Scheme support providers
This guide is designed to support organisations to plan for ‘business continuity’, a fancy way of saying making a plan
to ensure you continue to provide services to the people who need them most, while also making sure your organisation survives so you can continue to provide those services.
Some people with disability are more at risk of developing a serious infection and many people are worried about being able to access essential disability and medical services. It’s critical at this time for disability support providers to have a plan in place about how they will continue to provide essential supports.
The guide is designed to walk providers through the process of developing their own Business Continuity Plans with prompting questions. We try to help you think about what you need to do, what might go wrong, what might be needed now and in the near future.
