Dr. Piers Gooding - 19 Stories of Social Inclusion

This LiDs Seminar will discuss the project 19 Stories of Social Inclusion: Lessons from the Lives of Everyday Australians on Belonging, Disability and Community Contribution. The project tells the story of 19 individual Australians and explores what it means for people with disabilities, particularly people with intellectual and cognitive disabilities, to be “socially included” and what it means to exercise the right to live independently and be included in the community in line with Article 19 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.

The materials were gathered in collaboration between the University of Melbourne Disability Research Initiative and a national network of community organisations, led by Belonging Matters in Victoria.
