Since the introduction of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), parents and carers of children and young people with a disability have had greater choice about the services they use. Learn more about what makes a service safe for children with disability.
We've created 2 introductory video overviews for parents and carers.
Choosing an organisation video Choosing an individual video
We also offer free training videos with discussion points for people working in the disability sector.
Our SAFESpace eLearning teaches workers about keeping children safe in organisations in the disability sector.
Parent and carer information guide
There are a number of things organisations can do to make sure that children with disability are safe. This guidance will provide parents and carers with information to help them choose the right service provider for their family, whether from an organisation or individual service provider.
We've created 2 brochures that provide a handy overview of what parents and carers can look for in services and organisations:
- Choosing an organisation to work with your child
- Choosing a person to work with your child
Share these brochures in your parent and carer networks to raise awareness of child-safe services in your community.
