Frequently Asked Questions


The disability sector in Australia faces several challenges. The team at Pathways Australia can help your organisation navigate them. 

  • Funding: Ensuring sufficient and sustainable funding for services, particularly with the evolving demands of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), is an ongoing challenge for organisations in the disability sector. Pathways Australia offers courses and surveys that can help your organisation develop strategies to improve your donations and financial management.
  • Workforce Issues: Shortages of skilled staff, staff burnout, high turnover rates, and the need for ongoing training affect workers and organisations in the disability sector. HR services and board support from Pathways Australia can help you support your staff in the right way. 
  • Service Access: Geographical disparities in service availability, especially in rural and remote areas, can adversely affect communities. Pathways Australia can evaluate your organisation and its programs and offer suggestions on operational improvements. 
  • Policy Environment: Maintaining high standards of care amidst NDIS and regulatory changes and increased scrutiny can be a challenge for organisations of all sizes. Pathways Australia can help your team stay educated so that they can effectively navigate the regulatory landscape.

In addition to foundational training, the following courses are highly beneficial for staff working in disability services:

  • Project Management: Strong project management skills are necessary to ensure that initiatives and services are delivered on time and within budget. Good project management also helps with risk mitigation.
  • Customer Service Excellence: For staff in disability services, excellent customer service skills are essential. These skills are key to resolving conflicts and building strong, supportive relationships with clients and their families.
  • Financial Management: Effective financial management is crucial for ensuring that disability services organisations run smoothly and meet their targets. Understanding and assessing financial health helps in better resource allocation.
