We welcome all feedback, the good and the bad. If people speak up it helps us to see what works, what doesn’t and where we can make improvements.
If you’re a participant we’d love to hear about how the NDIS has helped you connect with the community. Perhaps you’ve started a course or a new job or are now a member of a community group. Whatever you’re up to we’d love to hear your story.

What happens when you make a complaint?
We will resolve your feedback or complaint as quickly as possible at your local office. Our Feedback and Complaints Procedure and the NDIS Participant Service Charter requires that we:
- take immediate action where there appears to be a high risk of harm, neglect or abuse
- aim to acknowledge feedback or complaints within the next business day from receipt
- call you within two business days of acknowledgement
- aim to resolve complaints within 21 business days of receipt
- publish information on our performance.
When we contact you to talk about your feedback or complaint we may ask you to provide more information to help us understand the nature of your feedback or complaint.
We will contact the person or organisation you are providing feedback or a complaint about, provide them with details and ask for their comments and relevant information. We will let you know what they say in response to your feedback or complaint.
Feedback or complaints can be resolved in many different ways and the staff member who is handling your feedback or complaint can provide you with information about how similar feedback or complaints have been resolved.
If you are dissatisfied with the outcome you can ask for a manager to review your complaint and how it was handled. After this, if you are still not satisfied, you may seek assistance from the Commonwealth Ombudsman: Call: 1300 362 072
