Geraldton Providers | NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission
June 23 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Are you committed to ensuring people are safe and receive quality services from you?
Do you want to know more about your role and responsibilities under the NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission?
The NDIS Commission is an independent government agency that regulates the provision of NDIS supports and services. It works to improve quality, prevent harm to and safeguard the rights of NDIS participants, investigate and resolve complaints relating to supports and services, and strengthen the skills and knowledge of providers and NDIS participants across Australia. It replaces the various quality and safeguards arrangements that have been in place in states and territories, creating a unified and consistent national system.
The commencement of the NDIS Commission in WA is a significant development, and an important part of the approach to building inclusive, respectful and supportive communities across Australia that promote the rights and wellbeing of people with disability.
This session will cover the obligations of NDIS providers under the NDIS Practice Standards and the NDIS Code of Conduct. In particular there will be an opportunity to hear about and ask questions in relation to:
- Behaviour support
- Reportable incidents
This is being hosted by the NDIS Commission and WAiS (WA’s Individualised Services) and is supported by the Department of Communities, Disability Services (formerly Disability Services Commission).
