In 2008, acia pioneered a quality standard and audit scheme, which is now known as the Australian Community Industry Standards (ACIS) 2018. The Australian Community Industry Standards and Scheme focuses on service user outcomes and goals. Our aim is to support the provision of quality services and we continue to take a leadership role in the quality area. We provide a quality analysis service for providers so they can understand where they are now in their quality journey and help them reach where they need to be—so contact us on 02 9264 7197 if this is what you need.
Further Experience In Quality Standards
We have worked closely, as part of the project team, with National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) and Department of Social Services (DSS) to develop the National Disability Quality and Safeguard Standards and associated rules and guidance. These rules are now being implemented across Australia to make sure the industry adheres to the highest standards.
It is because of our extensive experience and involvement in the development of the NDIS practice standards that we believe we are the most reliable source of guidance. We can support providers in meeting any and all compliance requirements—and we are especially able and equipped to help those who really don’t know where to begin. At acia, we regularly receive calls from service providers who are not sure where to start on their pathway to implementing a quality framework for their organisation. We can help you to get NDIS approval quickly.
