The Profitable NDIS Provider Podcast - Season 1 - Episode 4 Album Art

Welcome to the fourth episode of “The Profitable NDIS Provider” podcast with Tania and Paul. In this episode, we take a different approach and explore the world of unregistered NDIS providers. Paul and Tania interview Caz Parker from Core Supports, an NDIS provider who has chosen to operate as an unregistered provider, and discuss their journey, reasons for not registering, and challenges they face while providing services to NDIS participants.

Caz shares her experience on why she chose to stay unregistered and how it affects her business model. She discusses the regulatory and financial implications of staying unregistered and the limitations she faces in terms of providing certain services to NDIS participants. She also provides insights on how she markets her services and attracts participants without the credibility that comes with being a registered provider.

Throughout the episode, Paul and Tania ask Caz about her experiences navigating the NDIS system as an unregistered provider, the benefits and drawbacks, and what advice she would give to others considering the same path.

This episode is a unique opportunity to hear from an NDIS provider who has chosen to operate as an unregistered provider and their experiences in navigating the system. It provides a different perspective on the NDIS landscape and highlights the challenges and opportunities that come with being an unregistered NDIS provider.

If you’re an NDIS provider or interested in the disability sector, this episode is a must-listen. Tune in to hear from Paul, Tania, and Caz Parker from Core Supports, as they share their unique insights and experiences.
