About The Rights Path (TRPP) project

This project is designed to deliver robust choice and control focused outcomes for culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) people with disability through an approach that draws on their own experiences. SSI will work closely with NDIS participants and providers across NSW, Queensland and Victoria to consult, co-design, test and disseminate resources.

The purpose of this project is to:

Develop resources in Vietnamese, Khmer, Punjabi and Urdu.

Strengthen NDIS participants’ understanding of their rights and the quality they should expect of NDIS service providers.

Improve participant knowledge of how to make a complaint when they are not satisfied with services they receive.

Work with NDIS providers to assist in meeting their responsibilities under the NDIS Quality and Safeguarding Framework.

Encourage providers to connect, collaborate and form partnerships, share best practice, to strengthen their feedback and complaints pathways and promote participants rights by using the resources developed in this project.
