Active Support

What is Active Support?

Active Support is a way for people with disability to engage in meaningful everyday activities of their choice, with the amount of support they need.

Active Support has been shown to improve the quality of life of people with disability and increase work satisfaction for disability service staff.

These four short videos show how disability service staff and the community can expand someone’s world by using an Active Support Approach.

1. A day in Fran's life

2. A day in Carissa's life

3. Connecting with others

4. Connecting in the Community
