NSW CID Position Statement - NDIS Quality & Safeguarding Framework

Published

NSWCID’s position is based on:
1. the experience of people with intellectual disability and their families,
NSWCID’s long experience in systemic advocacy: and

2. discussion at our National Roundtable on Quality and Safeguarding and People with Intellectual Disability, held in March 2015.

SW CID calls for a very rigorous frame work as:

  • People with intellectual disability are over 60% of NDIS participants and are very vulnerable to abuse and neglect
  • Capacity for choice and control will not just happen for people with intellectual disability. It should gradually grow over time
  • The implementation of the NDIS is an enormous undertaking.


These factors point to the need for a very rigorous quality and safeguards framework in the early years of the NDIS.

The spending on a rigorous framework would be an investment that would yield considerable budgetary savings over time.
