About the pilot

The Autism Services Marketplace pilot is the outcome of collaboration from a range of not-for-profits, private and public sector organisations, which have a common goal – to improve the lives of people with disabilities. The pilot tests a concept for building lasting financial value for disability NFP’s from the shared delivery of a blended online/offline service, which people with disabilities and their families need.

 

The pilot will test five key hypotheses:

1. The Autism Services Marketplace will provide a free decision-making and self-advocacy resource, which gives parents of children with autism spectrum disorder more choice and control during the implementation of their NDIS Care Plan.

2. The Autism Services Marketplace will provide disability advocates with common tools for assisting people with disabilities and their families to make decisions.

3. The proposed social enterprise model will deliver new and incremental incomes for the participating NFP’s.

4. The Autism Services Marketplace will provide disability service providers with a cost-effective “level playing field” for accessing new business.

5. The Autism Services Marketplace will drive value for commercial partners, whose community marketing investments are used for establishment.

The pilot has been six months in the making and combines the co-operative thinking of our strategic stakeholders, sponsors, Steering Group members, participants in the pilot and influencers, who have all contributed to the pilot’s co-design, funding and current market-readiness. We are embarking on the first stage of the pilot second week of August in a tightly defined geographic area with a select group of families. After the initial stage has been successfully achieved pre-agreed performance levels, we will expand coverage and participation in structured stages. Ultimately, our goal is to rollout a Disability Services Marketplace across South Australia and possibly beyond.

We welcome your involvement in any capacity. We are inviting anyone with an interest in participating in the pilot – either directly contributing or simply watching our progress – to make contact with us. Please join this exciting and innovative initiative, which has the potential to deliver real choice and control for all people with disabilities. The more of you that follow this initiative, the more chance we have of delivering its value to you all.
