The aim of the Supported Decision-Making Project was to build knowledge on how people with cognitive impairment can be supported to make major life decisions, such as post-school options and accommodation.

The research, conducted by La Trobe University, explored the processes and dilemmas associated with supporting people with cognitive disability in decision making. The outcomes of the research were then used by Scope to develop a range of resources to improve knowledge and build capacity in the area of decision-making support. The multimedia and print resources target families and carers, service providers, and legal professionals.

The Supported Decision-Making Project was conducted by Scope in partnership with Carers Victoria and funded by The Victorian Legal Services Board through their Major Grants Program.

The resources are available for free.
