Client Rights

As an individual receiving services from ABI Community Services you have certain rights, and ABI Community Services has responsibilities to ensure those rights are upheld. This section provides information from the Office of the Health & Disability Commissioner (HDC) on your rights as a consumer/client, and provides links to information on ways to make a complaint.

Clients and their families have the right to expect assessment and rehabilitation services that are client and family centred, and delivered with sensitivity and compassion, without bias to an individual’s/ or their families location, socio-economic situation, preferences, capabilities or culture.

ABI Community Services values positive, collaborative relationships with clients and encourages any person who feels their rights are not being met to contact us directly so we can have the opportunity to address your concerns.
