Community Services Welfare
Funding:The lack of funding is a big issue. If I were to make a recommendation it would be for the Government to increase funding so as ACES could expand their services and assist more people with disabilities to achieve a better quality of life.
Some General Public perception of a disability: A service user who differs from the norm are often perceived to be of less value by some of the general public. People often deny feeling this way but it does happens. Because of this attitude disabled people are likely to be denied opportunities to gain respected roles. They may even be rejected or persecuted.
Service users best learn to do anything by doing it in the place where it really happens and with people who usually do it. For prejudices against disabled people to fade, the general public needs to have positive experiences with disabled people. "Personal social integration, valued social participation".
ACES is filling this role by encouraging and assisting the consumers to access everyday activities. In doing this the general public are then given the opportunity to be educated in the understanding of people with a disability and see that they are not to be feared or shunned - but accepted, encouraged to "join in" and included in conversation. When the general public have positive experiences with disabled people the "unknown fear factor" towards someone who is "different" will hopefully be eliminated.
