Disability Service Safeguards – Code of Conduct

The Code sets out the obligations that all Victorian disability workers must abide by and provides a standard to protect people with disability from harm and abuse.

The Code is designed to complement the NDIS Quality and Safeguarding Framework to promote a safe and skilled disability workforce within Victoria. The Code adopts the NDIS Code of Conduct, promoting consistency in the requirements for worker conduct in Victoria, regardless of whether they are funded through the NDIS or other providers.

The Code is set out in the Disability Service Safeguards Regulations 2020, which are rules made under the Disability Service Safeguards Act 2018.
