ABSTRACT
The quality of life for adults deinstitutionalised from the Templeton Centre in Christchurch is surveyed through the eyes of their mothers. Results are compared to those of other studies that followed up people discharged from similar institutions. These results are looked at in the context of contemporary disability policy and the challenges faced by communitybased support providers to implement these policies. In particular, the paper will focus on the issues faced by day service providers of vocational training, leisure and recreation services, business enterprises, community participation and supported employment. It argues that in order to increase the quality of life for their clients, day services and residential providers (organisations providing ‘residential care’ where housing is a part of a person's disability support package) need to work in a more collaborative way. The challenges of inclusion and social role valorisation for non-government organisations (NGOs) providing support services is also discussed.
