PODC receives Third Party Verification
Parents of Deaf Children (PODC) is proud to announce that we have recently received the NSW Disability Services Standards Third Party Verification.
The disability services sector in NSW has been moving towards developing a consistent approach to quality assurance to ensure that supports and services are delivered to a standard of quality that meets clients' and community expectations.
Based on the NSW Disability Service Standards (NSW DSS), which align with the endorsed National Standards for Disability Services, all service providers are required to undertake third party verification of their performance once during the life of each funding agreement.
The verification process included a self assessment of current systems and operations against the NSW DSS. The process also took into account feedback from people with a disability, their families and carers, as well as an onsite review.
PODC is proud to announce that the organisation achieved Third Party Verification last week.
