Strategy

Where I live; how I live – Disability Support Services community residential support services strategy 2018 to 2020

28 Mar 2018
Description

Where I Live; How I Live is about optimising the independence and self-determination of disabled people. It is in line with the Enabling Good Lives (EGL) principles that support people with a disability to make decisions about the kind of life they want.

This strategy guides the Ministry’s Disability Support Services, disabled people and their families/whānau, and residential service providers, in achieving the following outcomes:

  • greater choice, control and flexibility over where and how disabled people live
  • access to information and support to enable well-considered choices about where and how disabled people choose to live and receive support
  • increasing independence and choice fostered by service providers.

The strategy also aims to improve options for disabled people whose complex support requirements present challenges for the delivery of a sustainable service.
