NDIS: Make it Known, Make it Better
This year, the NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission launched a new campaign to promote the rights of NDIS participants, called 'Make it known, Make it Better'. Focusing on their right to feel safe and receive quality support from their care providers, the campaign encourages and empowers participants to speak up when needed and includes a range of informative videos featuring NDIS participants, their families, and workers.
The NDIS has also made a variety of resources available to assist people with a disability to raise their concerns either with their provider or with the NDIS directly. The resources include brochures, posters and fact sheets and can be found on the NDIS website.
Make it Known, Make it Better Videos
The videos cover a range of topics including the NDIS Code of Conduct, respect for individual rights (including LGBQTI+ communities), respecting privacy, providing supports and services in a safe and competent manner, making a complaint and more. Watch the following video from the NDIS about respecting privacy, or you can view all videos on the NDIS website.
