The Disability justice Project has a number of elements, designed to build disability services sector capacity that will best support people with cognitive disabilities who are in contact, or at risk of contact, with the justice system:
- Disability Justice Project Framework: a document that guides good practice when working with people who have cognitive disabilities and who may come into contact with the justice system.
- Free training: a broad range of training aimed at frontline staff, team leaders and managers. This training program will comprise face-to-face courses, located in a wide range of venues across NSW, as well as online programs and webinars.
- Leaders’ Forums: held bi-monthly for managers and leaders in the sector, providing presentations of importance to the sector as well as information on the project, to enable leaders to commit to their staff attending these courses, online programs and Communities of Practice.
- Communities of Practice: have been established in each FACS region across the State, supported by training and discussion materials.
