The values underlying the delivery of services to people with disabilities have changed so that such people are now to be treated as full citizens with concomitant rights. This book deals with the nature of the change and its legal and institutional ramifications.
Tom Bellamy and Lynne Davis discuss the values which now govern the relationship between people with disabilities and society. What do we mean by 'citizenship' and 'disability'? What are the implications of the federal government's emphasis upon caring by family members and upon contracts for delivery of services? Can the market resolve all problems of access to social resources?
New values being established, what laws will support and reflect those values? Changes in values and laws require complementary changes in the institutions - families, government departments, etc. - which realise them. How to effect change in the public service? In the voluntary sector? What of disability advocacy? Or institutional culture? Or crime prevention and patterns of offending? What of the move from segregation to community?
The contributors to this book provide a blueprint for meaningful reform.
