NDIS complaints

If you are not satisfied with your NDIS funding you may wish to request a plan review with the NDIA or contact the NDIA directly to discuss your NDIS Complaints & Feedback.

You may also wish to seek support from an advocacy agency to assist you. You can contact the Commonwealth Ombudsman to escalate your complaint regarding the NDIS and the NDIA.

As a registered provider of NDIS supports, RIDBC is committed to the NDIS Quality and Safeguard Commission Complaint handling guidelines in the management of feedback and complaints about the supports we provide.

In the event that you have a complaint  specifically about RIDBC and the provision of supports under the NDIS, and you are not able to come to a resolution with RIDBC, you may wish to escalate your complaint to the NDIS Quality and Safeguard Commission. The commission expressly encourages you to first contact your provider to discuss your feedback and attempt to resolve your complaint.  

If you believe RIDBC or another service provider has breached the NDIS Code of Conduct, you can contact the NDIS Quality and Safeguard Commission

There is a brochure detailing how to make a complaint to the NDIS Commission and detailed information on their website about how complaints are handled by the Commission.
