Developing and maintaining person centred active support with people with neurotrauma

Christine Bigby, Jacinta Douglas, Emma Bould,

Published Literature


Quality of life is widely used as a key indicator of service outcomes for people with disability. For TAC clients with high and complex needs as a result of neurotrauma, quality of life is enhanced through engagement in personally meaningful activity, skill development, choice and control, increased independence, and cultivating social and interpersonal relationships.

There is substantial evidence of better quality of life outcomes for people with intellectual disabilities where support staff practice Person Centred Active Support (Active Support). This study sought to explore the application and effectiveness of delivering Active Support in supported accommodation services for people with neurotrauma.
