Quality reform in NSW
Here you will find information your organisation needs to know about implementing the two new quality reform requirements set out in the new Funding Agreement. Within three years (by 30 June 2015), all funded service providers MUST:
- Implement a quality management system (if you do not already have one); and
- Provide evidence to an independent third party to confirm organisational performance against the NSW Disability Service Standards.
Up to $6.7m from the Industry Development Fund has been allocated to help you to meet these quality reform requirements, between 1 July 2012 and 30 June 2015. The subsidy is being administered by National Disability Services (NDS) and the Application Form is available from NDS.
- Detailed workshops - building on the information sessions held in May 2012, further workshops will be delivered in 2013 to assist service providers in understanding how to implement the updated NSW DSS.
