The NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission is an independent agency established to improve the quality and safety of NDIS supports and services.
We are working with NDIS participants, service providers, workers and the community to introduce a new nationally consistent approach so participants can access services and supports that promote choice, control and dignity.
The NDIS Commission:
responds to concerns, complaints and reportable incidents, including abuse and neglect of NDIS participants
promotes the NDIS principles of choice and control, and works to empower participants to exercise their rights to access quality services as informed, protected consumers
requires NDIS providers to uphold participants' rights to be free from harm
registers and regulates NDIS providers and oversees the new NDIS Code of Conduct and NDIS Practice Standards
provides guidance and best practice information to NDIS providers on how to comply with their registration responsibilities
monitors compliance against the NDIS Code of Conduct and NDIS Practice Standards, including undertaking investigations and taking enforcement action
monitors the use of restrictive practices within the NDIS with the aim of reducing and eliminating such practices
is working in collaboration with states and territories to design and implement nationally consistent NDIS worker screening
focuses on education, capacity building and development for people with disability, NDIS providers and workers
