Effective Disability Services

New models of services

The work in this theme has created a structured evidence base on which disability services can improve the quality of life for the people they serve. Working closely with people with a disability and disability services, researchers are investigating new models of services, such as supported living, new practices such as supported decision making, exploring community participation and how to improve outcomes in group homes through embedding active support and practice leadership.

The project on Effective Decision Making Support also has much more information in the menu on the left, including the active recruitment of participants.
