Supporting Decision Making Workshop

Life Unlimited NASC in conjunction with IHC Advocacy invites people who provide support to people with an intellectual disability to a free workshop on Supporting Decision Making. Through interactive activities we will explore what makes good support, how to support people to make decisions for themselves, safety issues that can arise, and legal options that are available.

The content is based on information from interviews with people with intellectual disabilities, the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and current best-practice models of supported decision making.

At this workshop you will:
- Explore what supported decision making is and why we all need to know about it,
- Increase your skills for supporting others to make decisions,
- Share ideas about some of the challenges,
- Build on your knowledge for ensuring the people you support are getting what they need.

Spaces are limited. Please RSVP by 25 October to: petrac@lifeunlimited.net.nz or contact Life Unlimited NASC on 06 986 4033 for more information.
