The NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission is an independent body that works to improve NDIS Quality and safety for disabled individuals. They work with disabled individuals, service providers, NDIS Support Coordination services, and others in the community to ensure a nationally consistent approach towards disability support.
Here are some of the ways in which the commission makes a positive impact on the NDIS participants.
They ensure prompt response to the concerns of the disabled individuals regarding incidents like abuse or neglect, upholding the individual’s right to be free from harm. It is mandatory for service providers to report such concerns and complaints to the authorities. The commission has provided NDIS Code of Conduct and NDIS Practice Standards and has educated NDIS providers and workers on how to comply with these responsibilities. These standards ensure that services like daily life support, mental health support and NDIS Accommodation services follow consistent quality standards.
The commission will also monitor the service providers to ensure their compliance with these standards and code of conduct. If the service provider follows any restrictive practice, the commission will carry out an investigation and enforcement action. They also focus on the education and capacity building of disabled individuals and encourage the service providers to focus more on activities like community participation services and psycho-social recovery coaching.
The commission also works towards improving the entire NDIS market, workers, and information exchange to improve future services. Aastha welcomes initiatives like this which upgrades the status of NDIS from just a funding service to an authority that safeguards the rights and interests of disabled individuals and looks forward to offering better services to the disabled individuals across Perth, Joondalup, Mirrabooka, Osborne Park, Morely, Cottesloe, Fremantle, Victoria Park, Canning Vale, Maddington, Armadale, Cockburn Central, Kwinana, Rockingham, and Mandurah.
