UMFC Position On NDIS

UMFC has concluded its extensive evaluation of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) to see if the agency could participate in a viable and sustainable way.

The result is very clear, we cannot.  The constraints of providing services under the NDIS framework (i.e. the NDIS Price Guide) do not lend themselves to smaller organisations being able to provide a range of services in a viable and sustainable manner. With less than $1M revenue from services to people with disability, UMFC is considered a smaller provider.

The agency’s existing Aged and Disability Support Services was restructured at the end of June, to adjust to the reduced funding. It has been a difficult time for us during this process. However, we remain committed to continuing to provide quality services to our community and this has been the basis of our restructure. We have informed our current clients and key stakeholders of the decision, and will continue to share information when it becomes available.

UMFC Message for Victorian NDIS participants

We continue to support people with disability, their families and carers. However, we are not in a position to do so under NDIS. We are committed to continuing to provide supports to families until they transition to NDIS, government funding permitting.
