Self Direction Articles

Member of the Inclusive Living Network believe:

  • We live better lives when we have the power and control to make our own decisions and
  • Our lives are better when we can access and direct supports to match the vision of our lives.

In our manifesto, we have outlined what Self Direction means to us (see attached)

We have gathered some resources that we have found helpful on Self Direction. Over time will we be adding articles, videos, podcasts and links to other websites on this topic.
