The Department of Social Services has announced the release of the National Standards for Disability Services (NSDS). The Standards have a strong focus on the rights and outcomes for people with disability receiving services. The NSDS are the result of wide consultation and reviews undertaken since 2010 and a test version were trialed in 2012.
Disability employment services will transition to the NSQD during 2014 and may use the “old” or the new Standards during 2014.
Further detail and copies of the Standards are contained on the Department of Social Services website at this link
HDAA look forward to working with your organisation to support a seamless transition to the NSDS.
