The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provides services and support for people living with a disability. If your business either provides services to NDIS participants or discloses NDIS information to third parties, then you will require an NDIS Consent Form.
What Is A Consent Form?
An NDIS Consent Form is a legally binding agreement where a participant explicitly gives their consent for you (an NDIS provider) to use and disclose their personal information to another party.
Circumstances in which you may require an NDIS consent form include:
- If your business provides a service i.e lawnmowing a clients home who is a participant in the scheme, then you will likely need a consent form to perform your job.
- A client who is a participant of an NDIS and your exchange will require their information being used.
What Happens If I Don’t Use An NDIS Consent Form?
If you disclose the information of another person without their consent you are at risk of breaking the law. Additionally, to perform a service or an act that involves another without their consent, is also potentially breaking the law.
Consent can be given verbally, however this is much harder to prove. A written document not only provides security but also clearly states the rights and limitations of the consent.
Therefore, it’s always safe to get any approval your business may need in writing. Particularly in an NDIS context, you may come across situations where you’d need to report incidents that occur with clients. This may also involve the disclosure of personal information, which makes an NDIS Consent Form even more important for your business.
