What is disability advocacy?
The National Disability Insurance Scheme Act 2013 defines an independent advocate, in relation to a person with disability, to mean a person who:
is independent of the Agency, the Commission and any NDIS providers providing supports or services to the person with disability
provides independent advocacy for the person with disability, to assist the person with disability to exercise choice and control and to have their voice heard in matters that affect them
acts at the direction of the person with disability, reflecting the person with disability’s expressed wishes, will, preferences and rights
is free of relevant conflicts of interest.
The Act acknowledges the important role of advocates (including independent advocates) and other representatives of persons with disability; and requires registered NDIS providers to cooperate with, and facilitate arrangements for, advocates (including independent advocates) and other representatives of persons with disability who are affected by complaints or incidents and who wish to be independently supported in that process by an advocate or other representative.

HOW TO MAKE A COMPLAINT
People with disability have the right to complain about the services they receive. Most NDIS providers do their best to provide quality supports and services to people with disability, but issues can occur.
If you have a concern about your current NDIS supports or services, it is important that you talk about it.
Complaints are important—they can help providers understand what is important to people with disability and improve the quality of services they provide, so your complaint can help other people too.
If you feel comfortable, you are encouraged to raise your concern or complaint with your provider first, as this is often the best way to have your issue resolved quickly. All registered NDIS providers must have a complaints management and resolution system in place.
If the provider is unable to resolve your concern or complaint, then you should seek further support.
You may seek support from family, a friend or an independent advocate in making a complaint. For further information see: Disability Advocacy.
A complaint can be made to the NDIS Commission by:
Phoning: 1800 035 544 (free call from landlines) or TTY 133 677. Interpreters can be arranged.
National Relay Service and ask for 1800 035 544.
Completing a complaint contact form.
The NDIS Commission can take complaints from anyone about:
NDIS services or supports that were not provided in a safe and respectful way
NDIS services and supports that were not delivered to an appropriate standard
how an NDIS provider has managed a complaint about services or supports provided to an NDIS participant
As well as dealing with complaints, the NDIS Commission works to educate providers about delivering quality and safe supports, and effectively responding to complaints. If a complaint raises a serious compliance issue, the NDIS Commission has powers to take action.
