Disability Services

Disability Services (NDIS)

Each service user can expect CASPA to uphold their right to make decisions, including medical treatment and interventions.  When this is not possible, assisted or substituted (alternative) decision making will be made in line with the person’s expressed wishes, if known.  If not known, decisions will be made considering their best interests.

CASPA provides opportunities for people with a disability to participate in the development and review of policy and procedures that promote strategies for quality including upholding human rights

CASPA recognises the importance of risk-taking and enables each person to assess the benefits versus the risks of each option available to them. CASPA will support individuals to make their own decisions with dignity.
