The introduction of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) has led to the State Government considering the future of accommodation services provided by the Department of Human Services (DHS). This has been done in consultation with clients, their families, staff and the disability sector.
The department is prioritising support for clients, families and staff to transition to the new NDIS environment and will be a provider to choose from while the NDIS matures.
The department will work with clients and families to explore the choices available to them and will support them in their choices, including moving to another provider in the non-government sector.
Accommodation Services is now transforming its service, including a re-shape of its structure and a review of systems, processes and practices to improve its services and engage with clients and families. This will also ensure that Accommodation Services offer a quality service that operates effectively in line with the NDIS while also supporting the growth of the NGO sector.
We will keep you updated here as next steps arise.
