Description:
The signing of the U.N. Convention on the rights of people with disabilities in New York in August 2006 together with the publication of our Government's National Disability Strategy has increased awareness of disability and prompted much anticipation and hope in people with disabilities, their families and friends, and the organisations that support them. Anxious to meet these expectations, we have, as a national umbrella organisation of voluntary service providers, been reflecting on the need for us to take stock of where we are at and to consider how best to configure ourselves to support people with intellectual disabilities into the future. We are strongly of the view that it is timely for us to embrace new ideas and new approaches and, as a sector, to be innovative in terms of how services and supports should be provided. Against this background we decided to devote our 2007 conference to the topic ''New Ideas - New Approaches - Supporting Innovation in Services and Supports to People with Intellectual Disability". Our intention was to point to the need for strong leadership in the management of change.
