New Submission to The TasCOSS Vault

Review of the Guardianship and Administration Act 1995 (Tas)

Among the report’s recommendations is the removal of the need to establish that a person has a disability, and refocusing on whether a person is able to make decisions with the use of appropriate support. The report states this approach ensures that people with disability are treated equally before the law, reflecting a contemporary rights-based approach to decision-making.
