Event description

Description

Communities of Practice are a great opportunity for service providers to share their successes and learnings as well as to hear the perspectives of people with a disability and representatives from other relevant organisations and sector bodies.

Building on the success of the existing Quality and Safeguarding/Zero Tolerance Community of Practice in Melbourne, National Disability Services is seeking representatives from Victorian based service providers to join one of three, regional meetings in Bendigo, Traralgon and Geelong. These meeting will be held quarterly.

Meetings will cover requirements under the NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission, state-based quality and safeguarding arrangements and the NDS Zero Tolerance initiative.

The objectives of the Communities of Practice are to:

  • Share knowledge, perspectives and experience to assist service providers to understand their obligations under the NDIS Quality and Safeguarding Framework and other state-based quality and safeguarding arrangements.
  • Support service providers to embed the NDS Zero Tolerance resources into organisational practice: Sharing success and barriers to embedding positive work cultures using the NDS Zero Tolerance resources.

The materials developed as part of the NDS Zero Tolerance Initiative will be explored throughout a series of discussion topics.

Potential focus areas may include (but are not limited to):

  • Building a skilled and safe workforce
  • Practice Leadership
  • Certification audit preparation
  • Behaviour support and the use of restrictive practices within the NDIS
  • Responding to complaints and reportable incidents, including abuse and neglect.
  • Worker screening and the Code of Conduct
  • Understanding the universal protections for people with a disability outside the NDIS (e.g. police and other regulatory complaints systems).

Accessibility

All venues are wheelchair accessible. Please contact the organiser directly with any additional accessibility requirements.

Who should attend?

Representation from Practice Leaders and Senior Management from a variety of service providers, ranging in size, is encouraged.

As a Community of Practice, representation will also be sought from a number of sector professionals with relevant experience, perspectives and insights into Quality and Safeguarding requirements as well as people with a disability and representatives from other relevant organisations and sector bodies.

Meetings held every 3 months.

The NDS Zero Tolerance initiative is funded by the Victorian State Government.
