NDIS Resources

The Disability Reform Council

The Disability Reform Council (DRC) has released the NDIS Quality and Safeguarding Framework, a nationally-consistent approach to quality and safeguarding for NDIS participants.

The following principles underpin the framework:

  • Human rights – The Framework is intended to uphold and respect the rights of people with disability
  • The presumption of capacity to exercise choice and control – That all people with disability have the capacity to make decisions and exercise choice and control
  • National consistency – Regardless of postcode, participants can expect the same level of protection
  • Proportionality and risk responsiveness – The level of regulation will reflect the risk of harm
  • Efficiency and effectiveness – The framework will assist the development of an efficient and effective NDIS market”
     

Queenslanders with Disability Network (QDN)

The Queenslanders with Disability Network (QDN) and a group of organisations are working together on the Getting on the NDIS Grid project. The project works with people who may experience additional challenges engaging with the NDIS so they are supported to understand the NDIS, check their eligibility and understand how to access the scheme. 

The project is for people who currently do not receive disability support services and who are:

  • transient, in supported accommodation, living in caravan parks and/or experiencing housing challenges
  • homeless, or at risk of homelessness
  • exiting the child safety, criminal justice and juvenile justice systems
  • from lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and/or intersex communities

The project covers the South East region of Queensland - the Fraser Coast, Burnett regions, Sunshine Coast. Moreton Bay, Brisbane, Redlands and Gold Coast areas.
