Key Policy Documents

The Next Steps community of practice gathers policy and research that is relevant to the change agenda being embraced by the particpants of the community and to individuals with intellectual disabilities and their families. 

Each of the organisations participating in Next Steps has a case study to bring forward initiatives that move towards individualised supports. To assist our members in ensuring that these case studies take account of key national policy documents, the Next Steps Project has developed one-page summary documents that identify the goals of four of the key policy documents.
