Embracing Change: A Guide to the NDIS Practice Standards

The Embracing Change project was established to foster greater awareness of the NDIS Practice Standards and Quality Indicators from a psychosocial disability perspective and support existing and prospective NDIS providers to achieve increasing alignment with the NDIS Practice Standards.

Mental Health Coordinating Council has developed two new resources to support organisations that provide services to National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) participants with a psychosocial disability.

The NDIS Practice Standards Guidebook: An essential guide for psychosocial disability service providers and an accompanying online resource, the NDIS Practice Standards Self-Assessment Tool, are now available for providers to access below.

 

Join us in the webinar launch of these new resources and how to use the online self-assessment tool on 18 August 2022 with MHCC CEO Carmel Tebbutt, MHCC Project and Policy Officer Katy Sam and Director of Breaking New Ground NGO Services Online, James Houstone. Find out more.

The Guidebook provides:

  • Explanations on what each quality indicator of the Standard means

NDIS Practice Standards Self-Assessment Tool

The Self-Assessment Tool:

  • Collates and links soft copies of compliance evidence
  • Provides Evidence Guides on documents suitable for audits and practical examples in service delivery
  • Generates quality improvement plans to identify compliance gaps
  • Prepares compliance reports (including evidence documents) for review
