From 1 July 2020, the NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission will commence operation in WA.
The NDIS Commission is an Australian Government agency which has been established to uphold the rights of, and promote the health, safety and wellbeing, of people with disability receiving NDIS supports or services.
They are the national regulator of providers of NDIS supports and services and are now established in all Australian states and territories other than WA.
The NDIS Commission will:
- ensure providers and workers know and follow the rules for quality and safety
- assist with, and respond to concerns, complaints and serious incidents
- register and regulate NDIS providers Australia-wide
- educate and inform NDIS service providers, workers, participants and people in the community about the NDIS Commission’s requirements for quality and safety.
