Your Service, Your Rights will build the capacity of people with intellectual disability and NDIS service providers across Australia to understand peoples’ rights when receiving services.
In 2020-2021, NSW Council for Intellectual Disability and South Australian Council for Intellectual Disability developed resources about the rights of people with intellectual disability in services.
They also delivered face-to-face and online workshops for people with intellectual disability and NDIS providers in NSW and South Australia.
The NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission has asked Inclusion Australia to roll out the resources and workshops nationally.
What we will do
Inclusion Australia will work in partnership with our state-based member organisations, First Peoples Disability Network (FPDN), National Ethnic Disability Alliance (NEDA) and Children and Young People with Disability Australia (CYDA) to:
- develop, customise and deliver training material to support people with intellectual disability from a variety of cultural, geographic and age backgrounds
- assist people with intellectual disability all over Australia to contribute to an increase in the quality of the services and supports they receive.
This project is funded by the NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission and will run from 2021–2023.
