States agree to set national disability services standards

ABC News reported this evening:

The states and territories have agreed to set national standards and benchmarks for disability services at a meeting in Canberra today.

At the meeting, disability ministers also struck a deal to share information as part of a national child protection framework.

Parliamentary Secretary for Disabilities, Bill Shorten, says national reporting tools will be used to work out service benchmarks.

"What we've been able to do today is get some commitment on what is an acceptable standard of care," he said.
