The Disability justice Project had a number of elements, designed to build disability services sector capacity to best support people with cognitive disabilities who are in contact, or at risk of contact, with the justice system:
- Disability Justice Project Framework: this document provided guidance on good practice when working with people who have cognitive disabilities and who may come into contact with the justice system.
- Free training: a broad range of courses aimed at frontline staff, team leaders and managers. The program comprised face-to-face courses located in 27 locations across NSW, as well as online training and webinars.
- Course materials: all the course materials developed for this DJP training continue to be available, for download at no charge.
- Leaders’ Forums: were held every two to three months for managers and leaders in the sector, providing information on the project as well as presentations of importance to the sector.
- Communities of Practice: were established in each FACS region across the State, supported by training and discussion materials. Most continue to run, beyond the end of the project.
- Links: to useful, relevant articles and resources concerning disability justice issues.
- Regular Newsletter: keeping all who registered up to date with information on the project, the training being offered and the Communities of Practice.
