What is National Disability Insurance Scheme? (NDIS)
Around 1 in 6 (18%) of people in Australia have a disability. The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provides more than $22 billion in funding a year to an estimated 500,00 Australians. NDIS can help connect people who struggle with their disability with services that can help benefit them in everyday life. These include services such as grocery visits, appointments, household tasks, personal support & hygiene just to name a few. NDIS Quality & Safeguards Commission is the Federal Government regulatory body that oversees the administration and regulation of NDIS. GCC is approved by the NDIS Commission and JAS-ANZ (Joint Accreditation System of Australia and New Zealand) to undertake quality audits against the NDIS Practice Standards.

GCC provides an efficient and unbiased NDIS audit that is incredibly competent

Frequently Asked Questions.
Is my Audit remote? How do I prepare for a remote Audit?
Firstly, our team will need to connect with you via video conferencing. (Google Meet, Zoom & Microsoft Teams) You are going to need to share several documents with us that can either be accessed via Dropbox, Google Drive, Teams or similar. When it comes to site sampling you will need to have a staff member on-site/location who can take us on a virtual site walkthrough. Participants interviews can be conducted via phone or video conference based on the participant’s wishes.
What insurance do I need?
You’ll need to have a certificate of currency that meets the minimum level of cover commensurate to the scope of the provider. This means you need to talk to your insurer about the size and scale of your business as well as the services that you will provide.
