The Department of Communities is committed to ensuring the highest quality of supports and services for people with disability.
The Quality System applies to all service supports registered on the Disability Services Provider Panel and incorporates the National Standards for Disability Services.
The Quality System:
To support service providers in their understanding of the Quality System, a series of fact sheets can be found below.
The Department has developed the ‘Ensuring Quality’ brochure to inform people with disability using State funded services and supports about the quality evaluation process. During the quality evaluation process, the quality evaluators present this brochure to the service users they interview about the services they receive.
Service providers who wish to inform people with disability, families and carers about the Quality System can use this brochure.
