The NDIS Quality and Safeguard Commission has designed a mandatory NDIS Code of Conduct for NDIS service providers and workers that provide support to participants. This Code will come into effect nationally (excluding WA) from 1 July 2019, with WA to follow from 1 July 2020.
Designed to promote the health, safety and wellbeing of people with a disability, the Code of Conduct sets out expectations for safe and ethical services and supports for NDIS providers and workers.
To assist those working within the disability support sector to understand their obligations under the Code, the commission has developed an interactive online NDIS Worker Orientation Module “Quality, Safety and You”. The module takes about 90 minutes to complete, and workers can click through here to access it now
The Disability Service Safeguards Code of Conduct (the Code) is set out in the Disability Service Safeguards Regulations 2020, which are rules made under the Disability Service Safeguards Act 2018 (the Act).
The Code sets out the obligations that all Victorian disability workers must abide by and provides a standard to protect people with disability from harm and abuse.
The Code is designed to complement the NDIS Quality and Safeguarding Framework to promote a safe and skilled disability workforce within Victoria. The Code adopts the NDIS Code of Conduct, promoting consistency in the requirements for worker conduct in Victoria, regardless of whether they are funded through the NDIS or other providers.
The Disability Workers Code of Conduct
What does the Code of Conduct require?
The Code requires that disability workers, in providing supports or services to people with a disability, must:
act with respect for individual rights to freedom of expression, self-determination and decision-making in accordance with applicable laws and conventions
- respect the privacy of people with disability
- provide supports and services in a safe and competent manner, with care and skill
- act with integrity, honesty and transparency
- promptly take steps to raise and act on concerns about matters that may impact the quality and safety of supports and services provided to people with disability
- take all reasonable steps to prevent and respond to all forms of violence against, and exploitation, neglect and abuse of, people with disability
- take all reasonable steps to prevent and respond to sexual misconduct.
Who is covered by the Code of Conduct?
The Code applies to all disability workers employed or otherwise engaged to deliver disability services in Victoria, regardless of their funding source.
The term ‘disability worker’ means a person who directly provides a disability service to a person with disability, or their manager or supervisor, and includes employees, key personnel, contractors, agents and volunteers who provide services on behalf of an organisation or agency.
It does not apply to a family member of a person with disability who provides a disability service without receiving a form of payment or reward, or to a person providing volunteer services, unless they are doing that on behalf of an organisation or agency.
A ‘disability service’ involves more than incidental contact with a person with disability and is provided for the purpose of caring for, or treating the person or supporting the person to manage the person’s limitations in undertaking communication, social or economic participation, social interaction, learning, mobility, self-care, self-management or a prescribed service.
