The NDIS Commission provides a nationally consistent approach to quality and safeguards in the NDIS. The NDIS Commission’s role is to promote the rights of NDIS participants and work with providers to provide safe and high-quality supports and services to people with disability.

The NDIS Commission has developed two new resources to assist participants and providers with an overview of the NDIS Commission and provide key information on its role and functions.

Information is available online in digital formats and printed/embossed formats can be requested.
