NDIS Complaint PolicyThis NDIS Complaint Policy is designed to be used by providers of NDIS-funded services to outline the provider’s complaint management procedure.
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a government funded scheme that provides support to eligible people with intellectual, physical, sensory, cognitive and psychosocial disability. The NDIS involves personalised plans to accommodate the need of each participant, hence the scope and delivery of services under NDIS should be explicated in written agreement.
This document outlines how the service provider will accept and evaluate complaints from its service recipients. It also includes several provisions designed to provide additional support to recipients with special needs, as required by the NDIS (Complaints Management and Resolution) Rules, and the NDIS (Code of Conduct) Rules.
