About GSP

 

At GSP we utilize a person centered approach when assisting our participants. A person centered approach is about ensuring someone with a disability, illness or injury is at the center of decisions which relate to their life. 

A person centered process involves listening, thinking together, coaching, sharing ideas, and seeking feedback. This process is ongoing to make sure each person is supported towards their personal goals, even as they evolve, and change. 

The ultimate aim is to understand what each individual person wants and needs to live their own, personally defined, good life.

We tailor our approach to each individual. When we are working with someone, we make sure we keep their strengths and interests, their communication preference, and who the person would like to involve, at the forefront. 

Disability Services Standard

All Disability Employment Service Providers are funded by the Commonwealth government and are required to meet the national Disability Service Standards.

The Disability Service Standards are:

1. Rights: The Service promotes individual rights to freedom of expression, self-determination and decision-making and actively prevents abuse, harm, neglect and violence.

2. Participation and inclusion: The service works with individuals and families, friends, and carers to promote opportunities for meaningful participation and active inclusion in society.

3. Individual Outcomes : Services and supports are assessed, planned and reviewed to build on individual strenghs and enable individuals to reach their goals

4. Feedback and Complaints : Regular feedback is sought and used to inform individual and organisation-wide service reviews and improvement.

5. Service Access : The service manages access, commencement and leaving a service in a transparent, fair, equal and responsive way.

6. Service Management : The service has effective and accountable service management and leadership to maximise outcomes for individuals.

These standards ensure that GSP's services are consistent with the principles and objectives of the Disability Services Act. GSP must meet these standards and have written policies and procedures that address each standard. These policies guide GSP in providing it's services and guide the decisions that GSP make.
