NDIS Champions: paid employment opportunity for people with disabilities


The Australian Federation of Disability Organisations (AFDO) is the national voice representing people with disability in Australia. AFDO and our member organisations are run by and for people with disability, which we believe is very important to truly represent the voice and lived experience of people with disability.

AFDO is looking for 30 people with disabilities to become NDIS Champions. We are especially interested in emerging grassroots leaders – people who are great communicators with a fresh voice.

NDIS Champions programPeople with disabilities are not often asked to provide information about the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) to their peers and community. AFDO is now offering an NDIS Champions program that will put together a group of people with disabilities from all around Australia who can confidently provide information on the NDIS. Training will be provided to the NDIS Champions to make sure they have the necessary skills and knowledge.

Who can apply?
  • The NDIS Champions Program is only open to people with disabilities
  • Applicants must provide an Australian Business Number (ABN); either a personal ABN or through their employer (not AFDO)
  • Applicants must be covered by insurance; either personal accident and indemnity insurance, or WorkCover through their employer (not AFDO)
