The roll out of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) and the mental health reform environment in NSW has led to considerations as to better ways to support people exercise ‘choice and control’.
“A ‘Circle of Support’ has been described as “a group of people coming together to help formulate, promote and support the goals of a person”
