Developing a Safeguards Framework for People Supported by the NDIS

Published: March 2013

This discussion paper is the result of work led by the Safeguards and Quality Assurance Expert Group as part of the NDIS implementation groups. It draws together current thinking around capital building for all citizens and empowering safeguarding in the context of the emerging NDIS. The paper offers an outline of a Safeguarding Framework that enables citizens to be safe, well and included. The Framework is person centred and starts from the premise of building citizens capital through developmental investments. The approach is fundamentally steeped in the notion of citizens having an active role in safeguarding themselves.

Connecting to Citizenship

Published: October 2004

This policy paper, Connecting to Citizenship, focuses specifically on the promotion of social networks among persons with disabilities. Relationships are a critical element of humanity, of identity, of belonging and of citizenship. This paper identifies a number of levers of influence available to promote the development of social networks and makes a number of social policy recommendations. While conceived for promoting social networks around persons with disabilities, implementation of most of the recommendations, will also benefit other groups that are frequently isolated and lonely.

Reaching Out

Relationships are the key to citizenship because full citizenship can only be achieved when we are recognized as contributors. It is through relationship that our contributions are given an opportunity for expression and recognition. Full citizenship for people who are marginalized has remained elusive. This report is for people involved or interested in social network facilitation: families, individuals at the centre of network building efforts, facilitators of networks, network members, service providers, and the community at large.

Choice and Control to Safely Live a Good Life of Belonging and Citizenship

Published: June 2021

This paper provides advice to the NDIA Board as to an approach to assist participants, their families and carers to develop strategies for their personal safety to enable them to live a full life safely. The rights based framework of the NDIS Quality and Safeguarding Framework defines safeguards as actions designed to protect the rights of people to be safe from the risk of harm, abuse and neglect while maximising the choice and control they have over their lives. This definition was further clarified by the WA Disability Services Commission describing safeguards as supports and mechanisms that promote, enhance and protect an individual’s human rights, decision making, choice and control, safety and wellbeing, citizenship and quality of life.
