WHAT WE BELIEVE
 


RIGHTS and RESPONSIBILITIES

We believe people with disabilities have rights and responsibilities as citizens and as individuals in our community. ADAM inc. supports and upholds these rights as outlined in the Convention of the rights of persons with disabilities. (United Nations)
PARTICIPATION, INCLUSION and IDENTITY 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 we do not have the capacity to solve specific individual issues such as housing or accomodation etc. we will work with and/or refer individuals to other agencies who have a focus in this area
SERVICES We believe services are more effective for the individual when delivered out in the community. We reject centre-based services or other options that bundle people together based on disability or perceived need.
CAPACITY 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.
ADVOCACY We believe every individual has the right to a formal or informal advocate if they wish to assist them in their decision-making.
OUR POLICIES Webelieve clearly defined policies are essential to keep ADAMinc. on track and to ensure we remain focused on the people we support. Policies and processes are updated and reviewed yearly or as required. A copyof our policies can be download here.
