High quality services

The Disability Act 2006 has a number of mechanisms to improve the quality of disability services.

The provision of a quality service is crucial to ensuring that people with a disability are receiving the best range of supports to assist the achievement of their personal goals and aspirations.

Some of the key measures within the Disability Act 2006 relate to the following matters.


Our Secretary must keep a register of disability service providers, which can be viewed by the public. The register is a list of community service organisations that we fund to provide disability services to persons with a disability. 

Community service organisations must comply with the requirements of the Disability Act 2006 to be registered with the department as disability service providers. For more information, see Registration requirements for disability service providers on our Providers website.


Our standards represent a single set of service quality standards for service providers. For more information, see Human Services Standards.
