The NDS WA Conference, ‘What Matters Most – Solutions for Today and Tomorrow’, is the premier conference for the disability sector in WA and will be held on 16 and 17 September 2019 at Crown Perth. It will provide a forum to consider and share what matters most for the disability sector and people with disability into the future, as the state continues its transition to the NDIS.

The conference will cater to a diverse audience including disability sector CEOs, board members, managers, and frontline staff, together with people with disability, their families and carers.

Attendance at the conference will provide you with the latest information and practical insights into how your organisation can operate, innovate and succeed in the disability sector of the future.

Program highlights include:

  • A session with Robert Fitzgerald AM, Commissioner, Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse
    Robert is an engaging and expert speaker on the lessons learnt from previous Royal Commissions. He will also be sharing his thoughts on the future of the not-for-profit sector.
  • Understanding Consumer Law and the NDIS, presented by David Hillyard, Commissioner for Consumer Protection
    As the disability services sector moves from having contracts with government to having service agreements with the ‘consumer’, the legal framework is moving from contract law to consumer law. It is crucial that everyone knows how consumer law applies to the NDIS. Dr Hillyard will explain the five main elements of consumer law as they apply to the NDIS: misleading or deceptive conduct, unconscionable conduct, unfair terms, consumer guarantees and other unfair practices.
