I am here - Article 19
We are really concerned about the barriers faced by people with high and complex needs. So we commissioned researchers from the Donald Beasley Institute to work alongside twelve people with high and complex support needs to tell their stories and be heard. The result is the powerful Article 19 - I am Here research.
The twelve people involved told us that they were denied the fundamental freedom to choose where they live and who they live with and to be included in the community. This must change!
We want to use this research to change the way the government and wider society treats people with high and complex needs. People with high and complex needs must be included in society, the same as everyone else. We want you to be part of the change. Please take the time to read about the research and get involved with the conversation on our blog site. We have also created an email petition on our blog site, please consider signing the petition.
We also have postcards, which you can send to your local MP or to a Government Minister.
