Event Details

Are you a guardian or thinking about guardianship?

Do you know about supported decision making?


Around Australia laws about decision making for people living with disability are changing.  Many now say that every person can make their own decisions if they get the right help.  This kind of help is called Supported Decision Making (SDM).      

In the ACT our new Mental Health Act says that people can have support to make decisions.  The Law Reform Advisory Council (LRAC) has made recommendations that our guardianship processes should be replaced with a supported decision making framework.

ADACAS, The ACT Disability, Aged and Carer Advocacy Service, has been doing project work in SDM for the past five years.   We work with people who have disability, carers, families, supporters and all kinds of service providers learning about how to support decision making.  We then share what we know so that more people can use supported decision making too. 

ADACAS and the Public Trustee and Guardian are holding an information session about Guardainship and Supported Decision Making.  We will talk about

  • What SDM is
  • How SDM can help people live better lives
  • How supported decision making can help guardians in their role
  • Supported decision making as an alternative to guardianship
  • Any questions you might have

People with disability, family members, carers and guardians are invited to come along.
