Guardianship : final report /

by Victorian Law Reform Commission.

Publisher: Melbourne Victorian Law Reform Commission 2012Description: lxxxv, 2-610 p. ; 30cm.Other title: Victoria. Parliament. Parliamentary papers ; no. 101, session.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: January 2012 Includes bibliographical references Chairperson: Neil ReesSummary: Victoria has been an Australian and world leader in the field of guardianship law. Legislation passed by the Victorian Parliament in 1986 has been the model for similar laws in other states and territories, as well as other countries. While much of the existing legislative framework is sound, the Commission suggests that it is time for new guardianship laws, built around that framework, that reflect contemporary thinking about people with impaired decision‑making ability and which are designed for the many different groups of people who now use these laws. Perhaps the most significant change in thinking has been a shift from the language of 'protection', so evident in our current guardianship laws, to an emphasis on enabling people with decision‑making disabilities to participate as fully as possible in decisions that affect them.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Brotherhood of St Laurence 2005Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: April 2004Summary: The BSL welcomes this opportunity to contribute to the Inquiry by the Senate Select Committee on Mental Health. Although not a mental health service provider, many of the people with whom the BSL works are living with mental health problems, contributing to the disadvantage they experience. The Terms of Reference are broader than BSL experience or expertise. This submission, therefore, focuses on those Terms of Reference of greatest relevance to our work and to the lives of the people we support.
