New NDIS Quality and Safeguarding Framework Consultation Paper

The Australian and state and territory governments are working together to develop a new national quality and safeguarding framework for the NDIS. They want to make sure people with disability are provided with quality support, choice and control to pursue their goals and aspirations.

Take a look at the consultation paper to see what issues they are considering and let them know if you have anything else to add. Let them know what you think about the issues raised in the paper and how the different quality and safeguarding options might affect you.

These are the areas they are particularly interested in:

  • Building capacity
  • Monitoring and oversight
  • National Disability Insurance Agency provider registration
  • systems for handling complaints
  • ensuring staff are safe to work with participants
  • safeguards for participants who manage their own plans
  • reducing and eliminating restrictive practices in NDIS funded supports.

You can get involved in by making a submission online, joining the discussion in the online forum, completing a questionnaire or attending a public meeting.
