Working together to trial blended payments

Opening Soon

Blended payments

On 9 May 2023, the Australian Government announced $24.6 million over 4 years (2023ā€‘24 to 2026ā€‘27) to work with participants and providers to trial blended payments.

This initiative will help ensure every dollar goes to support people with a disability by working with participants and providers to co-design trials of blended payments that increase providersā€™ incentive to innovate service delivery and achieve improved outcomes for NDIS participants.

The trials will be undertaken in two areas to focus effort and resources on genuine co-design:

  • School Leaver Employment Supports (SLES) to identify ways to improve employment outcomes for participants.
  • Move young people in residential aged care (YPIRAC) to more appropriate housing with supported independent living to drive innovative services delivery approaches.

We will work with participants and providers to carefully design these trials, including ensuring safeguards are in place. Participation in the trials will be voluntary for NDIS participants.
