GUESS WHAT… People with a disability want the same things!!!!! Natural and freely given relationships – more than just paid support in their life. Good health and wellbeing A place called “Home” Finances Opportunities for personal growth Real Choice Dignity Safety and security
So A Good Life is? It’s about Relationships with friends, family, loved ones; getting out and about, having fun; and plenty of opportunities to try new things are all part of a good life. A good life means something different to everyone but whether you have a disability or not we are all striving for the same things.
Social Role Valorisation Social Role Valorization (SRV) is a set of approaches designed to enable devalued people in society to experience the Good Life. There is strong connection between people being seen in community in valued roles and enjoying the good things that come from a typical life.
What society values What does our SOCIETY value? That is: worthy of emulation, intrinsically good? (QUICK BRAINSTORM) Certain people in society hold certain roles. Roles are the characteristics of certain people in relation to their position within society, within family, within community.
What Australians don’t value! People who are not seen to have something to contribute to society “BLUDGERS” “THUGS” “HOONS”
So what roles will you have this weekend? mother, father, sister, brother, employee, employer, student, friend, planner, organiser, driver, sportsman, budgeter, cook, cleaner, homeowner, investor, researcher, motivator, initiator, etc. All of these are VALUED SOCIAL ROLES
