JFA Purple Orange made this submission to the Senate Community Affairs References Committee's inquiry into planning options and services for people ageing with disability.
Ensure public policy, planning and commissioning of supports uphold the place of people living with disability as valued citizens at the core of our communities.
Introduce individualised (self-directed) funding.
Establish person-centred planning arrangements.
Establish new common funding mechanisms for commissioning personal supports.
Use the Model of Citizenhood as contextual framework for establishing supports that enable people living with disbaility and their families to plan for the future.
Use a co-design approach within formal support sytems to ensure people living with disability and their families have a genuine stake in support arrangements.
The establishment of arrangements for the provision of high quality 'Supported Information' to help ensure that future formal support systems are responsive to the informed choices of people living with disability and the family members actively involved in their lives.
The establishment of Supported Decision-Making arrangements across Australia, to maximise the potential for people living with significant degrees of disability to retain their personal authoritity and to exercise this authority in the planning of future supports as they age.
Specific planning and support options for people ageing with disability occur within the context of Australia-wide community capacity-building, so that public transport and the full range of community amenities are genuinely accessible to, and welcoming of, all citizens.
The introduction of new innovative funding mechanisms, such as the Registered Disability Savings Plan, to support people living with disability and the family members actively involved in their lives to strengthen the financial resources available to support people as they age with disability.
The establishment of resourced arrangements, for example as a component of Individualised (Self-Directed) Funding, that facilitate the intentional development of sustainable, freely given networks of regard and support in the lives of people ageing with disability.
