Everyone has the right to make their own decisions or if needed to have support to make their own decisions. This right must also be balanced against the need to protect a person from harm to themselves or from exploitation.
Capacity Australia’s vision is an inclusive community that respects individual’s abilities and which empowers people to make their own decisions with necessary supports when required. As a self-funded charity, Capacity Australia gratefully accepts any monetary donation, big or small.
