Starting as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the CEO Collaboration was formed on 6 March 2020 with four invitees, led by Able Australia. The CEO Collaboration initially focussed on COVID-related issues and the responses that were required at the time, giving a voice to the Disability Sector during a time of substantial upheaval and uncertainty.
The Collaboration is a safe place for CEO and Senior Executives to collaborate, discuss and solve issues and is open to any registered NDIS provider.
Today, the group’s remit provides senior leaders from across the disability sector an opportunity to discuss the many issues faced by the sector in a collegiate, supportive manner, and to share resources to build a stronger sector.
The CEO Collaboration has driven a number of submissions and projects including:
- Royal Commission into Violence, Abuse, Violence, Neglect and Exploitation of People with Disabilities – Hearing into Emergency response and Preparedness
- SIL Commission
- Uber partnership for vaccination centres for Australians living with disability
- Risk-based Practice Framework for Centre based Day Services
- Victorian AHA Workforce Plan – Implementation Tool
The CEO Collaboration currently represents over approximately 84 registered disability service providers, representing over $2.33B NDIS revenue, 42,000 participants and 26,000 employees.
If you represent a registered disability service provider and would like to know more about the CEO Collaboration, please contact Katrina Richards, Executive Assistant to the CEO, at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 03 9046 0506.
