Democratising Disability... Taking Control
The United Nation’s Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities recognises the importance for persons with disabilities to have the freedom to make their own choices, and be actively involved in decision-making processes about policies and programs.
The Lifetime Support Authority (LSA) actively engages participants of the Lifetime Support Scheme in all levels of decision making – about their care and support arrangements, and even the operations and policies of the LSA – to deliver a high quality, person-centred disability service that supports their wellbeing and ability to live their best life.
Together with partners, including PQSA, Brain Injury SA and Department of Communites and Social Inclusion, the LSA is seeking to democratise service delivery and promote all-inclusiveness of people with disabilities.
The session will explore barriers in achieving person-centred community for everyone, regardless of ability or location, and mechanisms to facilitate democracy in the disability sector and community.
