HENDERCARE TRANSFERS TO THE NDIS QUALITY AND SAFEGUARDS COMMISSION

HenderCare has become one of the first disability providers in Australia to transfer to the NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission.

Transferring to the Commission aligns with Hendercare’s consumer directed model of care which ensures clients have greater choice, control and dignity.

An independent agency, the NDIS Commission will act as a single body overseeing the regulation and registration of NDIS providers, making it easier for both providers and clients and helping to lift industry standards.

HenderCare is a strong advocate for the aims of the Commission which include:

• Promoting the NDIS principles of choice and control, and work to empower participants to exercise their rights to access good quality services as informed, protected consumers;
• Providing guidance and best practice information to NDIS providers on how to comply with their registration responsibilities including how to provide culturally responsive and appropriate disability supports;
• A focus on education, capacity building and development for people with disability, NDIS providers and workers.

The Commission also provides clients and families with a single body where they’re able to raise concerns or make complaints, with all providers adhering to a code of conduct.

HenderCare views the Commission as a valuable partner and equally beneficial to clients and providers.

As part of its regulatory requirements, HenderCare will undergo independent auditing by the Commission and all our workers will undergo a new national screening test – both valuable in maintaining high industry standards.

HenderCare CEO, Amanda Blight has said HenderCare is committed to continuing to demonstrate leadership as a registered NDIS provider.

“We aim to continue to set new industry benchmarks by lifting standards through education and training, quality service delivery and innovation,” said Amanda Blight.
“Our clients sit at the heart of everything we do – they’re our first and primary consideration in our decision making.”

The Commission began operating in South Australia and New South Wales from July 1, 2018 and will be in place in all states and territories by 2020.
