Standards for disability and HACC service providers
Different service standards apply to disability service providers depending on the type of funding they receive.
Disability service providers
Providers funded by Disability SA for disability services must meet the National Standards for Disability Services.
The standards focus on person-centred approaches, and promote choice and control by people with disability.
There are six standards:
- participation and inclusion
- individual outcomes
- feedback and complaints
- service access
- service management.
The Department of Social Services has developed resources to assist providers to apply the standards within their service and to promote the standards to staff, people with disability and their families.
