Absolutely. In my view, the community sector needs to be providing leadership in family inclusion as we have more capacity to maintain leadership and champion family inclusion initiatives over time and through the difficult times. Legal aid and legal services are a big part of the solution. I also feel the university sector and researchers/academics/educators are important. Life Without Barriers is working closely with the University of Newcastle Law School and Family Inclusion Strategies in the Hunter to develop, trial and evaluate a peer work program here in the Hunter Valley, for example. A great way for the community and tertiary education sectors to lead change is to support parent and family leadership and help grow parent and family leadership in our communities.
