It promotes the principles of choice and control of the NDIS and works to empower participants to exercise their rights to access quality services as informed and protected consumers. Once the NDIS is fully operational in Western Australia, Australia will have a single national registration and regulatory system for NDIS providers, which will establish a coherent approach to quality and safeguards. In fact, the NDIS Commission simplifies things by setting clear expectations that are standard across the country. The NDIS Commission is responsible for improving the quality and safety of NDIS services, so that participants can access services and supports that promote choice, control and dignity.
The NDIS Commission is independent of the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) and will basically handle everything related to service providers, leaving the NDIA to focus on managing a plan that works well. Designed to protect people with disabilities, this Commission works with providers across Australia to ensure that they offer a high level of service and support to NDIS participants.
