e-Blast: Everyday Practice
On 8 January 2020 Amergin (www.amergin.net.au) announced the Everyday Practice support service. Amergin was one of the major recipients of funding under the NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission’s new four-year $17.6 million investment in building capacity amongst NDIS providers.
The objective of Everyday Practice is to help NDIS providers comply with their day-to-day NDIS quality and safety obligations, from the perspective of an NDIS participant, and to ensure NDIS participants understand their rights and what is involved either as employers themselves, or as participants getting support through registered providers.
Queenslanders with Disability Network (QDN) has been working in partnership with Amergin, the Community Resource Unit (CRU) and Richmond Fellowship Queensland (RFQ) to deliver this support. Everyday Practice is a free, national education and community resource.
QDN believes that it is critical that people with disability understand their rights to quality and safe practices, and what they can expect to be delivered to them within the legislative frameworks and practice standards. It is also important that providers can hear directly from people about what good practice looks and feels like.
QDN would like to thank all of our QDeNgage consultants who assisted in co-designing the participant resources for Everyday Practice. Feedback and advice of people with lived experience of disability is an important element for ensuring NDIS providers genuinely meet the needs of NDIS participants and improving the quality of services they provide to participants on a day-to-day basis.
