The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a national scheme for people with disability. Providers registered with the NDIS are required to implement the quality and safeguarding requirements and demonstrate compliance to the NDIS Practice Standards.
Dr Amina Shaukat is the National Quality and Compliance advisor for Able Australia, a leading provider of disability services for adults and community supports for seniors. Dr Shaukat shares her experience of Able Australia’s transition across to the NDIS and provides an insight about the NDIS re-registration journey.
