Disability Official Visitors
The NDIS Commission recently released its Final Report and Action Plan into an Inquiry into Supported Accommodation, which includes actions to improve monitoring and oversight of supported accommodation. In the ACT, our Disability Official Visitors play an important role in monitoring disability services and accommodation support, and handling complaints, to support improved services and outcomes for people with disability. Do you think ACT Disability Official Visitors should share information with the NDIS Commission to enhance the monitoring of supported accommodation to improve outcomes?
