WA Deferred Transition to NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission
The WA State Government announced it will defer Western Australia's transition to the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) Quality and Safeguards Commission until December 1 2020.
The deferral will allow service providers to focus on critical support issues for people with disability during the COVID-19 recovery period.
In the interim, the complaints investigation and resolution area of the Health and Disability Services Complaints Office (HaDSCO) will be allocated more resources and the existing quality and safeguarding functions performed by the Department of Communities will continue.
