Vision for individual supports

Our first priority for the Next Steps Project was to secure agreement on the vision that we hold for this project.

Through workshops with the participating organisations, self-advocates, the Steering Committee and the CEO's of the participating organisations, we developed an agreed and shared vision for individual supports.

This vision comes from three views of individual supports that are all in alignment:

1) The definition of Individual Supports from the Disability Policy Review by the Department of Health

2) The vision statement of the National Federation of Voluntary Bodies

3) The definition of Individualised Supports from John O'Brien and the 'Individualized Supports Think Tank' (2009)

We continue to benchmark the work we undertake through this project against this vision.
