Thank you so much Kelly!

Honestly, if JAS-ANZ wants to assess HDAA, I hope they come to me because I will give you folk a very big tick.  You have been so helpful and responsive.


Quick NDIS Verification

“… we started the NDIS application process about 3 weeks ago for our company to be approved under the NDIS for Home Mods.  Claire (at HDAA) made the task easier and was extremely professional and supportive….The submission was uploaded on 4 June and we received advice today 15 June that it had been approved.  Given it is usually a 3-6 month waiting time, we are delighted…”

just want to thank HDAA for the fabulous experience we have had with our first NDIS certification audit.  Peta and Anthea were just wonderful.  They guided us through the process, were very knowledgeable about the type of services were are providing and want to improve and we actually enjoyed the process.  I can’t say I have ever ‘enjoyed’ an audit before.”

Anglicare Southern Queensland  17/10/19

Firstly I want to acknowledge the fantastic support that we received from Penny in preparation for both the desk top audit and site visit. As the process is new we had many queries and issues to clarify and Penny provided timely responses and was always happy to talk through any concerns. Her support was very much appreciated. Secondly we wanted to provide positive feedback about the two auditors, Julie and Alex, who conducted the site visit. Being audited is always stressful however Julie as the lead auditor had a transparent and open approach that really put staff at ease. Both auditors were of exceptional quality and highly respectful of (our) staff and their knowledge and skills. We very much appreciated their approach. We are very pleased to have completed the NDIS auditing process and to have received such positive feedback from the auditors. Thank you. 17/06/19

“I believe that HDAA choose a auditor that is willing to understood how we work as a service both in the back and front ends.  Terrence is a auditor that I would recommend to other Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander and Cultured services.  Terrence has a wealth of knowledge and experience that he was able to speak to through the licensing process.  Terrence has strong boundaries and ethics that were complemented with his way of engaging and communicating with us as management and our team.  Our organisation has gained from this experience and look forward to seeing Terrence in our review in 2018. 21/3/17”

“My sincere thanks for all your assistance as I’ve just received the accreditation confirmation… I’ll be completing the surveys attached with positive comments as your organization has helped us not only understand the requirements for each standard but assisted us in knowing exactly what is required and having good access to communication along the way. This puts us in good stead in preparations for future accreditation process.    16/09/16”

It has been a lot of hard work, but we are very pleased with the result and our aim is to continue reviewing and improving on what we have achieved.

“(Assessor’s) professionalism and reassurance was wonderful and gave the (Organisation) team ( many of whom were experiencing their first audit process) a fantastic introduction to the benefits of the auditing process. (Assessor’s) insight and passion for the work we provide within the Disability sector is clearly a strength within his Auditor’s skills set . He is definitely an asset to HDAA. It was a wonderful opportunity to review our practice and set our goals for the future. 25/06/13”

“I would like to take the opportunity to thank HDAA for the way the audit was conducted. We really appreciate the positive approach the Auditors take. They have a great manner with staff and clients which makes the whole process non-threatening. However, I doubt we would pull the wool over their eyes if we weren’t meeting the standards to a satisfactory level! Thanks again. It’s always a bit of an anxious time no matter how much effort has been put in. (The Assessors) certainly made sure we were all put at our ease and were keen to work with us to improve services for our clients. 26/10/12”

“We were extremely pleased with how our HSQF Recertification assessment went, in regards to the current COVID-19 pandemic it worked really well having the Technology to be able to complete the assessment through Zoom meetings and using Dropbox.  Bernadette was excellent, she explained everything clearly and provided regular feedback throughout the audit. We would have no issues in having Bernadette as our auditor again in the future.”

The follow ups and feedback mechanisms from the assessors were very timely and direct to the point. The assessors I dealt with have been really helpful and patient in dealing with me. Special mention to Michelle Dowling and Anjela Neill who really pushed me with lots of encouragement to get to the final stages of the work that needed to be done. It has been a really enjoyable experience despite having to stay back to do the work after normal office hours. I learned a lot working through the accreditation process and recognize the need to continuously provide standardize services and keep improving the standards. Again a big THANK YOU to the HDAA team. 30/03/12”
