NDIS–Disability Work Has No Breaks

Whilst NDIS service providers are having a break for the Christmas and New Year, the pressure has never been released in our work. This year, another independent and agency called the NDIS Quality and Safeguard Commission was setup and became operatonal in July. It was established to improve the quality and safety of NDIS supports and services. The Commission will regulate the NDIS market and handle complaints about the quality and safety of NDIS supports and services.

As a registered NDIS service provider, DAPA is required to have our procedures reviewed and our staff given the appropriate training to comply to those standards. We are working on submitting renewal of our registration before the end of January 2019. We are working hard through this holiday period to fine tuning our practices.
