About the consultation

We are developing a new Support for Decision Making policy that will aim to:

  • increase the opportunity for participants to be actively involved in making decisions about their lives and to exercise real choice and control.
  • support development of participants’ capability in making decisions (and helping participants to explore and make those decisions).
  • build the capacity of decision supporters, agency staff and partners to recognise and enable the will and preference of participants.
  • strengthen a support for decision making approach in the appointment of nominees.

Before we make any changes, we want to ensure the proposed approach is evidence based and generates the best outcomes and experience for participants.

To inform these conversations, we have developed a Support for Decision Making consultation paper and animation in close collaboration with a broad range of participants and stakeholders:
