The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), which is delivered by the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA), supplies funding to Australian people who live with permanent and significant disability. This funding can be used to receive supports and services from registered NDIS providers. The NDIS Practice Standards work alongside the NDIS Code of Conduct to establish the benchmark of performance, quality and safety that NDIS providers should meet in their delivery of supports and services. In other words, the NDIS Practice Standards help to inform NDIS participants (i.e. NDIS funding recipients) about the quality they should be expecting from the supports and services they receive.
