Why take this course?

We all have things to do and places to be. Yet despite its essential role in everyone’s life, NDIS-funded Travel & Transport is still a grey area for a lot of providers. What are the Travel & Transport rules? How do you bill for Travel & Transport and keep compliant? And how can you communicate aaallllll this to participants? 

To add a layer of complexity (yay!) Travel & Transport is often the first thing to be under pressure when NDIS plans get tighter – meaning providers have to get clear about the costs of these services, and be able to demonstrate the value (or see the participant find a different provider). What’s even more complex under PACE, participants are more easily able to dispute claims, so it's essential providers get their pricing right and explain it clearly to Participants to get their approval upfront.

Now for the good news. This workshop series will deep dive into Travel & Transport rules, opportunities, and best practices. Providers will leave with more confidence in billing for Travel & Transport in a way that’s compliant (and learn how to effectively explain all this to participants). Phew.


What you’ll gain

There are two different versions of the workshop for providers to choose between.

  • VERSION ONE: Core Supports – focussing on General Transport and Activity Based Transport and which Core Supports can bill for Provider Travel

  • VERSION TWO: Capacity Building Supports – focussing more on Provider Travel (both Labour and Non-Labour) including how it can work for Support Coordination, Psychosocial Recovery Coaching and therapy supports.

  • Considerations and complications to consider (there are a few)

  • What’s included and excluded for Provider Travel, including time caps and per km rates

Rob Woolley

Our very own Woolly Mammoth, pulls up last in the alphabetical rankings but always gets a place on the DSC podium for combining curiosity with smarts. He knows so much about the NDIS it is scary. Rob lives a personal commitment to sharing his knowledge with an endgame of people with disability in control. Combining lived experience of the early childhood intervention pathway with professional experience of the realities of provider life - he has consistently shown the inability to hold down a real job. His roles in the disability sector have covered direct support work, project management, business development, consulting, ILC-funded advocacy roles and owner-operator of a registered and then unregistered provider (but the thing he is best at is being a very present dad). If you want a consultant or trainer in your corner you will be looking high and low to do better than our Rob.
