The NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission has invited Supported Independent Living (SIL) providers to help co-design resources for the wider implementation of Active Support. Providers can register their interest by Friday 4 August to take part in interviews, workshops and focus groups. 

The consultation follows the final report from the Commission’s Own Motion Inquiry into Aspects of Supported Accommodation in the NDIS, which examined over 7000 reportable incidents and complaints received about supported accommodation over a four-year period. Part of the inquiry looked at best practice models and it commissioned Professor Christine Bigby of the Living with Disability Research Centre at La Trobe University to conduct a literature review.
