A joint partnership between Deakin University (Victoria), Curtin University (W.A) and the University of Sydney wants to find out the best way a person with a disability can be supported to live in his or her own home.
Information About The Individual Supported Living (SIL) Project.
We want to find out the best way a person with disability can be supported to live in his or her own home.
We want to visit the homes of 150 people with intellectual disability who have support in their own home. This is so we can find out more about what makes individual supported living work well.
If you agree to join the project, researchers will visit your home. They will meet and talk to people who support you to live in your own home. We will write about what we find and tell people about the things that help people with disability to live a good life in the community. We will also write about any of the things that might get in the way of people having a good life. However, we will not tell anyone your name and address, or anything that is personal about you.
If you want to know more about the project, you can contact someone who lives in your state and they will organise the meeting time:
