Every Moment Has Potential Online Learning Resource for support workers

The resource provides an introduction to Person Centred Active Support - a way of working that enables everyone, no matter what their level of intellectual or physical disability, to make choices and participate in meaningful activities and social relationships.

When support workers use Person Centred Active Support, it leads to a better quality of life for the people they support. Increasingly, disability support services are adopting Person Centred Active Support as a way of working and are expecting support workers to be skilled in this approach. This online learning resource is based on research undertaken by many researchers in the UK and Australia including the late Professor Jim Mansell and Dr Julie Beadle-Brown, Professor Christine Bigby and Dr Emma Bould. 

This online learning resource introduces you to:

  • the key elements of      Person Centred Active Support
  • the skills you need to      practice Person Centred Active Support in your workplace
  • some of the many      positive outcomes for people with a disability that occur when support      workers use Person Centred Active Support. 

In order to demonstrate competency in Person Centred Active Support practice, the learning in this resource must be complemented by hands on practice in a workplace. 

This online learning resource was funded by the Australian Government Department of Industry. It is a collaboration between Greystanes Disability Services and the Living with Disability Research Centre at La Trobe University. It was developed with input from a wide range of stakeholders, including Western Sydney Institute of TAFE NSW and an Industry Reference Group and Steering Committee. Click here to see full credits.
