Residential services and people with a disability: a handbook

Author: Le Breton, J. V.
Type: Book
Year: 1985


This handbook has been developed in response to the growing need for information and practical guidelines for those concerned with community accommodation alternatives for people with a disability. The primary focus is on the role, response and activities of voluntary organisations providing accommodation. The handbook is also intended to be useful to those individuals, parents, citizen advocates, funding organisations and community groups who are involved in ensuring quality accommodation alternatives for people with a disability. Information is provided on the basic principles which should underlie human services, on the rights of residents, and on the range of accommodation alternatives required by people with a disability. Proven strategies and structures are described that will help people with handicaps to become more physically and psychologically independent. A list is provided of further readings.
