For service providers

Apply to be a disability service provider

Organisations applying for funding to provide disability services must first become a member of the Disability Services Provider Panel.

Providers are reviewed periodically to make sure they remain eligible for panel membership.

Approved service providers in South Australia

Before you begin

Panel members can apply for funding only in the specific service activity areas for which they have qualified, so it's important to be clear about the:

  • types of services the organisation can provide
  • target group or groups
  • regional areas being serviced
  • location of the services.

How to apply

You will need to apply for registration through a qualification process. Contact Disability SA and ask for an application kit.

Applications are assessed by Disability SA.

Legal and reporting requirements

Funding for disability services is made through the Commonwealth Government's National Disability Agreement Program (NDA). Disability SA manages the funds provided through the NDA.

Disability SA expects that organisations will comply with relevant Commonwealth and State legislation as part of any Disability Services Provider Panel application.

Registration with the panel does not guarantee that an organisation will receive funding or referrals from Disability SA.

Review the material about quality, managing feedback and standards before continuing with your application, so you are informed about the obligations you will face as disability service provider in South Australia.
