The draft National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) Code of Conduct is available now for you to have your say!
The NDIS Code of Conduct is part of the national Quality and Safeguarding Framework. The Code of Conduct will be in place to promote safe, high quality and ethical service delivery for the NDIS in full scheme.
The Code of Conduct is important to help:
- empower people with disability to know and exercise their rights;
- ensure providers and individual workers are aware of and meet expectations
- shape the behaviour and culture of organisations to be focussed on people with disability; and
- provide a way to enforce consequences if workers and providers do not meet expectations.
The Code will come into effect once the NDIS is at full-scheme and will apply to all registered providers delivering supports within the NDIS. It will be enforceable by law and will include sanctions for breaches of the Code.
We encourage you to have your say by completing this survey on the DSS website.
You can also upload a more detailed submission
Your input will be considered as the Code of Conduct is finalised.
Please also take a look at the Discussion Paper, which is also available in an Easy English version.
The closing date for completing surveys and uploading submissions is 5pm (AEST), 21 June 2017.
