NSW ADC seeking input on how to assess performance of Disability Strategy

Two people working on a document

8/10/2020

One of the roles of the NSW Ageing and Disability Commission (ADC) is to monitor, assess and report on the implementation of the National Disability Strategy in NSW. To do this, the ADC has released a paper outlining the establishment of a Standing Review into the implementation of the National Disability Strategy.

The ADC is seeking feedback from people with disability, their families, representative organisations, disability advocates and local and state government agencies on this mechanism and the best way to consult with the disability sector

Measuring NSW's performance against the National Disability Strategy is an important way of identifying how well the needs of all people with disability in NSW are being met, and the progress being made toward the goals of the Strategy.

We would encourage organisations to review this paper and provide feedback to the ADC. The consultation closes on Friday 30th October 2020.

NDS will be providing verbal feedback and also making a submission. Please contact Karen Stace if you wish to contribute to NDS's submission.

Providers are also encouraged to review the training and support modules on the ADC website. These modules are aimed at supporting support staff, volunteers and community members with the skills to confidently and competently identify and respond to concerns of abuse, neglect and exploitation of an older person or adult with disability, specifically within the family, home and community and where it relates to the conduct of a family member, partner or informal carers and supports.
