Voice at the Table

The resources developed as part of this project provide practical consumer participation information, ideas and resources which can be used by service providers, governments and community organisations to ensure people with cognitive disabilities have a ‘voice at the table’ and participate equally at all organisational levels.

Historically, people with cognitive disabilities have not been provided with the opportunity to act as representatives, inform policy development or to have real input into decision making, despite the fact that in many instances they comprise the majority of service users.

Available resources include:

  • information sheets about consumer participation
  • guidelines and videos on how to run inclusive meetings
  • top 10 tips quick guide for organisations

Funding for this project was provided by an initiative of the Victorian Government.
