Seeking builders for the NDIS


Builders and home modifications experts will be eagerly sought by people with disabilities once the National Disability Insurance Scheme launches (NDIS) in Canberra on 1 July 2014.

“Many people with disabilities will want modifications to their homes,” said Christina Ryan, General Manager at Advocacy for Inclusion, “and now is the time for builders to start thinking of them as a target market”.

Advocacy for Inclusion is holding the Control & Choice Expo on 22 May 2014 to show people with disabilities what products and services are available for them to spend their NDIS money on. “We want builders to be at the Expo” said Ms Ryan.

People with disabilities will want ramps, bathrooms modifications, air conditioning & climate systems, electronic doors, lighting systems, and much more to increase their independence in their own homes.

“People with disabilities will want to see these products and services at the Control & Choice Expo in May, we encourage builders and home modifications experts to get on board and start working with people with disabilities”, Ms Ryan concluded.

More information about the Control & Choice Expo is at

Exhibitor registrations for the Expo close on 16 April 2014.
