Rights of Participants

The NDIS Commission aims to uphold the rights of people with disability, including the right to dignity and respect, and to live free from abuse, exploitation, and violence. This is in keeping with Australia’s commitment to the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.

The Commission will achieve this through:

  • empowering people with disability to exercise choice and control in the support services they receive, while ensuring appropriate protections are in place
  • building the capacity of people with disability, their families, and their carers to make informed decisions about NDIS providers
  • responding to and managing concerns and complaints
  • supporting a strong and viable market for disability supports and services.
