Self-directed disability support Building people’s capacity through peer support and action research

C Purcal, S Cooper, N Bevan, K Fisher, A Meltzer, M Wong

Published Literature

2014

The project had two goals: peer support, with people in the groups learning from each other; and action research, with people doing research activities and sharing their findings about disability support with other people, for example, in this report. Disability support in Australia is changing, and people with disability increasingly have more opportunity to decide the details of their support—about how, when and by whom it is provided. In this report, this is called self-directed disability support (SDDS). The one year project was to find out how people with disability experience and manage the transition towards SDDS.
