How we do systems advocacy
The focus of our systems advocacy is on broad issues affecting the lives of people with impaired decision-making capacity.
Our priorities are:
- the promotion and protection of autonomy, rights and interests
- inclusion and participation of all people in society
- equal access to the goods and services available to all citizens
- sustainable service systems that improve outcomes for individuals
- strengthening the ‘voice’ of people with impaired decision-making capacity.
We do this by:
- creating and using knowledge gained through research and consultation
- working collaboratively with stakeholders to generate sustainable solutions and effect positive systems change
- contributing to and advocating for legal, policy and service environments that uphold individual rights in a sustainable and transparent way
- encouraging the development of systems that are inclusive, accessible and equitable
- highlighting systems barriers
- monitoring the effectiveness of systemic changes.
We operate in an open and transparent way with a clear purpose. We respect the integrity of the systems that serve to uphold rights and respectfully challenge their effectiveness where necessary.
