Over a three month period in 2019, the NDIS Quality & Safeguards Commission received over 1000 reports of abuse and neglect, with a large number of these reports being concerned with the unauthorised use of restraint.
The disability services sector remains under a great deal of scrutiny in 2020, with the ongoing Royal Commission and as the rollout of the new NDIS Quality & Safeguarding Standards continues. Even providers who have been audited against the new standards face the challenges of increased reporting requirements, increased expectations of quality service delivery and the ongoing balancing act of duty of care and dignity of risk.
