A framework for supported decision-making

The Disability Royal Commission has published a report called Diversity, dignity, equity and best practice: a framework for supported decision-making.

It’s about supported decision-making for people with cognitive disability. Cognitive disability refers to intellectual disability, acquired brain injury, mental health conditions, or dementia.

The report talks about a framework for supported decision-making. The framework is a guide to making sure supported decision-making is available to all people with cognitive disability wherever they are and whatever the decision is.

The report says there are nine principles of this framework.

These principles, and the details of how they are put into practice can be found in this report.
