The Freedom to Choose

A seminar on freedom to choose where and with whom to live, decisions about travel and financial decisions as part of the VOICES project based at the Centre for Disability Law and Policy, NUI Galway. The seminar will look at capacity to contract in many areas of life for people with disabilities (including people with dementia and mental health experience) such tenancy agreements, buying a home, contracts for services and financial agreements. It will examine how with the right support, people can make legally binding contracts that respect their will and preferences, while providing security for third parties who enter into contracts with people using this kind of support. The seminar should be of interest to students, researchers, people with disabilities, people with experience of the mental health system, family members, and practitioners in the fields of law, health and social care

This is a free event but please RSVP by November 16th as places are limited and refreshments will be provided.
