Travelling Hopefully

Best Practice in Self-Directed Support

Author: Simon Duffy

This report was written for the government of South Australia. It pulls together a range of practical and theoretical innovations which seem relevant to leaders in South Australia - both in the disability community, civil society and government.

The report argues that South Australia does not need to define a fixed template or model to impose upon itself. Instead South Australians should collaborate with each other to innovate and develop a progressively intelligent and innovative system - drawing on the best of international practice.
