Victorian Disability Worker Registration Scheme

The Victorian Disability Worker Commission forms part of the Victorian Government’s “zero tolerance” approach to abuse of people with disability. It opened for business, launched on 1 July 2020. The role of the Commission is to ensure that people with disability receive greater safety and quality services, workers have the necessary skills, experience and qualifications and stop people who pose a serious risk of harm from providing disability services.

Dan Stubbs is the Victorian Disability Worker Commissioner and he joins us to provide information about the new regulations introduced for disability workers. This includes new compliance obligations for workers and service providers under the new Disability Service Safeguards Code of Conduct , mandatory notifications and notifiable conduct, along with a new complaints service for sector audiences.


This webinar is part of the Advocacy Sector Conversations forum series. It’s happening online again due to the continued uncertainty of gatherings due to COVID-19. The sessions are spread across the week rather than a whole day of back to back sessions. For information about the other sessions in the series, click the ‘more information’ link below.
