To the Moon & Back Rights Statement

 

To the Moon & Back promotes the rights of people (including children, young people and adults) with a disability, as stated under the Disability Services Act 1993. All people with a disability have the same human and legal rights as all persons and these should be respected at all times.

 

At TMB we believe that each person has the right to receive services which respect and promote their legal and human rights and places them at the centre of decision making on all aspects of the way they live their life. Each person has the right to participate in decisions which affect their lives in ways that are appropriate to their age and stage of development. In the case of young children that right is vested in their parent or carer.

 

To the Moon & Back is committed to pursuing the rights and adopting the principles of a person centred philosophy in all practices, programs and service delivery models. These include the principles of equality, independence, participation, choice and inclusion.

 

To the Moon & Back supports and strives to maximise opportunities to assist people with a disability and their families to participate inclusively and contribute in their community according to their individual and cultural needs.

 

To the Moon & Back will act in accordance with:

 

  • The United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities which recognises that people with disabilities have the right to access the same opportunities as all citizens with full and effective inclusion in society.

 

  • UN Convention on the Rights of the Child 2006 which recognises that all children have the same rights and freedoms regardless of race, background, faith or disability.

 

  • Disability Discrimination Act 1992 (Cth) which makes disability discrimination unlawful and aims to promote equal rights, opportunity and access for people with disabilities.
