The department will continue to implement the Disability Sector Quality System as its main means of supporting quality service delivery.
The Disability Services Act 2006 recognises the importance of disability service standards and a process for certification. In this way, the Act provides a legislative basis for the Disability Sector Quality System and strengthens its role in ensuring continuous improvement in services and a client-focused approach.
The Disability Sector Quality System itself provides a framework that supports the assessment of the Queensland Disability Service Standards.
It recognises the importance of providing quality services that are responsive to the needs of people with a disability and ensuring that people with a disability have a say in how services are best provided to them.
