A no-show is if: a participant does not participate in a planned service or is not available; a participant is not at the agreed location on the agreed date for the service; and they do not notify the supplier in advance. The second page presents the specific terms of the Parramatta Mission Service Agreement. These are disasters, cancellations on behalf of the provider, and additional information from the guide. In the case of personal assistance from staff, staff may receive a telephone call and have the shift cancelled or reduced (provided that they have completed the minimum hours set out in their work agreements). This results in inconsistent jobs, unpredictable working hours, precarious incomes for workers with disabilities and can affect their reliability. Casuals often sign up with multiple vendors or jobs to ensure a reliable income. For the supplier, this increases staff turnover, recruitment and training costs, difficulties in occupying positions and finding the right support person for each customer. To make this brochure, it is useful to look at some examples offered by other service providers throughout Australia. The cancellation document proposed by Therapy Matters is a mix of image and text. Due to its child-oriented focus, this document specifically aims to help families understand how cancellations can affect their NDIS budget.

What provisions would be appropriate and fair for participants, NDIS providers and staff? Should the NDIS define more differentiated termination rules or will the system be even more complex and difficult to navigate? Should NDIS service providers be able to set their own termination rules or would this increase the risk of abuse? And how are attendees protected from providers who cancel or don`t show up at the last minute? This can (and should) be avoided by clearly communicating your cancellation policy to participants before working with them. We`ve listed three options below, ranging from high-level visual to pure text language to semi-visual. If you want to write your own cancellation policy document, there is no correct or wrong way to design it, but there is certainly a wrong way to convey the information. If the participant has been booked for a small group program, the program is carried out with a less paid companion, which is probably not possible in case of frequent cancellations before 3 p.m. During the indicted before the NDIA, it was proposed that the supplier could instead calculate the fee according to the actual presence ratio to the day (with the prior agreement of the customers). For example, if the group was scheduled in a 3-to-1 ratio and only two customers participated, the supplier could instead charge the participating customers the 2:1 rate. This approach creates administrative nightmares for suppliers and makes budgeting, offering and booking services more laborious and difficult. It also seems very unfair to the customers present, who have to bear the costs for absent customers while they have to monitor their NDIS budget. A customer who cancels participation in a program that operates for several hours and consecutive days results in a significant loss to the provider or customers who are charged a higher fee.

At the time of the revision of the NDIS plan, the absent participant could also give the impression that the allocated NDIS budget is not necessary. A cancellation is a short-term cancellation if the NDIS participant: If a participant does not arrive (no show) or cancels in the short term, an NDIS provider may charge 90% of the fee related to the activity, subject to a service agreement between the provider and the participant…
