The Commonwealth is developing a national Code of Conduct to promote safe and ethical service delivery for the full scheme NDIS.
The development of a Code of Conduct is an important part of the NDIS Quality and Safeguarding Framework which was released in February 2017.
Consultation is now open on the draft Code of Conduct. People with disability, their families and carers, providers and workers, are being encouraged to share their comments and feedback.
The Code of Conduct sets out national standards and outlines expectations of behaviour for providers and workers delivering NDIS supports and services.
Once finalised, the Code will be overseen by the new NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission announced in Budget.
To get involved, visit www.engage.dss.gov.au to read the Discussion Paper, complete the survey or make a submission. Consultation will be open until 5pm (AEST), 21 June 2017.
