A new campaign has been launched to get more Australians volunteering in the disability sector to help meet the surging demand for disability workers under the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).

Volunteer For Disability is a new campaign created by leading disability services organisation Interchange Incorporated.

The demand has increased with the roll-out of the NDIS, with 60,000 new disability workers needed by 2020, according to a report from the Productivity Commission.

Interchange will also look to address the disability worker shortage by providing volunteers with a career pathway into the disability sector through free accredited online training.
