Right on Board answers the need as highlighted by the Disability Royal Commission for greater awareness of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, as well as strengthened governance and management of quality and safeguarding.

Right on Board is a quality, tailored program to reflect your organisation’s unique challenges. For disability organisations that provide other services as well, our consultants incorporate relevant material from the Aged Care Quality Standards, the National Standards for Mental Health Services or the Child Safe Standards.

Boards and Executive Teams will gain a deeper understanding of:

  • the human rights approach and the legislative context, including key provisions of the UN Convention that affect service design and delivery;
  • the key concepts around quality and safeguarding impacting the entire sector, as well as the key challenges for your own organisation;
  • the adequacy of your current governance and management arrangements for human rights, quality and safeguarding;
  • the potential areas for strengthening your risk management practice;
  • the composition and structure of your Board regarding quality and safeguarding.

As a result of participating in this program, your organisation will have a better understanding of the quality standards that people using disability services should expect and be better prepared for responding to the Royal Commission.
