Social Action Partners Peer support for children and young people with intellectual disability and their families in Victoria - Project plan

Published Literature

2014

Christiane Purcal, Karen R. Fisher, Ngila Bevan, Ariella Meltzer, Sally Robinson. Funded by a Disability Donations Trust Research Grant

The project will establish local peer support groups of children and young people with intellectual disability and their families in Victoria. These groups will conduct action research about their experiences with self-directed disability support. The intention is to build capacity among participants in the transition to an NDIS-style policy landscape of self-directed support. The research findings will develop a profile of disability support from the perspective of children, young people and their families in Victoria and a baseline for a longitudinal study examining service information systems pre and post the introduction of the NDIS.
