We believe people with disabilities have rights and responsibilities as citizens and as individuals in our community. Ability Dignity Access Management Inc. supports and upholds these rights as outlined in the United Nations Convention of the rights of persons with disabilities
Rights and Responsibilities
We believe people with disabilities have the right to participate in and be included in their families, their communities and mainstream society. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders and other diverse cultural groups will be supported to strengthen their connection to their culture and community.
Where Ability Dignity Access Management Inc. does not have the capacity to resolve specific issues such as housing or employment etc. we will work with and/or refer individuals to specialist agencies who focus in these areas.
We believe supports are more effective for the individual when they are specifically tailored and delivered out in the community. We reject centre-based services and other options that bundle people together based on disability or perceived need.
Community Based Support
We believe all individuals, regardless of disability, have the capacity to live their own lives as they wish if they are provided with fair and necessary supports.
We believe every individual has the right to a formal or informal advocate if they wish to assist them in their decision-making. Ability Dignity Access Management Inc. is unable to provide formal advocacy. The Disability Advocacy Finder provides details and locations of organisations who can assist with formal advocacy.
