Clients in Supported Independent Living services or other accommodation arrangements can be supported by Official Community Visitors (OCVs). OCVs are coordinated by the New South Wales Ombudsman and are responsible directly to the Minister for Disability Services and the Minister for Community Services. 

OCVs visit government and non-government accommodation services for children, young people and people with a disability throughout NSW. Their role is to promote residents’ rights, identify issues raised by residents, provide residents with information, help resolve concerns and inform the Ministers and the Ombudsman about the quality of services being delivered. OCV visits can be requested by emailing ocv@ombo.nsw.gov.au. Further information about OCVs can be provided by the OCV Team Leader on 02 9286 1000.

Complaints about the NDIA should be directed to the Agency itself or the Commonwealth Ombudsman.

Complaints to the NDIA can be lodged:
