NRHA Submission to NDIS Quality and Safeguarding Framework

30 April 2015
The National Rural Health Alliance made a submission to the National Disability Insurance Agency on the NDIS Quality and Safeguarding Framework. The Alliance specifically focused on: (1) registering providers under the NDIS (2) implementing a system for complaints handling; and (3) ensuring staff are safe to work with participants in rural and remote Australia. The Alliance argues that while there are unique challenges associated with rolling out the NDIS in rural and remote areas, these should not detract from greater investment, flexibility and innovative care models where it is needed.
