How Recovery Options Understands Disability

One in five Australians has a disability. These Australians often face challenges that regular Australians don’t face due to impairment from birth, or disability acquired through illness, accident or the ageing process. These include cognitive impairments, as well as physical, sensory and psychosocial disabilities.

The Australian Government and disability services organisations such as Recovery Options are committed to helping these Australians to reach their full potential to participate equally in society without discrimination.

Recovery Options uses trained staff to assist people with disabilities to address poor health, lower levels of participation in education, training and employment, and social exclusion. It recognises that equal participation will enrich the lives of all Australians and works toward those goals in line with the United Nations Convention on Rights of Persons with a Disability, and the National Disability Strategy 2010-2020 to promote a fully inclusive Australian society.

Recovery Options understands that every disability is unique and requires a tailored approach to addressing specific needs, priorities and personal circumstances, and that some people suffer multiple disadvantages. It also recognises that it is often community attitudes of stigma and societal structures that are more disabling than the disability itself. Recovery Options works towards eliminating those barriers through education, advocacy and the promotion of social inclusion and economic participation, to help rebuild self-esteem that is diminished through isolation, discrimination and limited opportunities.

Recovery Options helps the individual to achieve their full potential by including them in a welcoming, warm and respectful process of collaboration between professionals, community and government within the context of their own choice and control.

Recovery Options looks forward to meeting with you and your family and developing long term partnerships and relationships.
