The social service sector

Australia’s social service sector is set for massive growth over the next five years, with the rollout of the National Disability Insurance Scheme, a rapidly ageing population, a trend towards consumer-directed services and increasing demand for qualified and job-ready workers.

Disability spending will almost double, while employment in health and social care will grow by almost 19%.

The Future Social Service Institute is at the forefront of these trends, helping build Australia’s workforce of the future.
