Have your say: Positive behaviour support and restrictive practices

Public consultation is now open as part of a review of Queensland’s positive behaviour support and restrictive practices authorisation framework.

The Queensland Government is seeking feedback from people with disability, their families, advocates, and the sector on how Queensland’s authorisation framework for the use of restrictive practices could better align with the new roles and responsibilities under the NDIS Quality and Safeguarding Framework and national principles.

The review is informed by an independent review of Queensland’s authorisation framework by Griffith University’s Policy Innovation Hub. It is also informed by a Ministerial review under section 241AA of the Disability Services Act 2006.

More information about the independent and Ministerial reviews is available on the Queensland Communities hub.

To have your say on reform of Queensland’s authorisation framework, and for more information, please visit the Queensland Communities hub. The consultation closes on Monday, 10 January 2022.
