The NDIS Commission is the body that overseas all providers paid using NDIS funds. This includes registered and unregistered providers. The Commission has minimum conditions that all providers must be aware of.
We recommend doing the FREE NDIS Commission Worker Orientation Module available on the NDIS Commission website. It is one of the best ways to get an overview of the Commission and how it applies to your business. The certificate of completion will allow you to prove to your clients you have done the module, and understand your responsibilities in the work you do for them.
In NSW all businesses who work with children need to do so within the NSW Child Safe Standards. This includes people who work with children through their NDIS plans.

Almost all people who work with children in NSW are also mandatory reporters. This includes people who are paid to work with children through their NDIS plans.
