Building on our responses to earlier Question Papers, we focus on the importance of the Guardianship Act reflecting and promoting an empowered view of people with disability in its language and principles. The Disability Inclusion Act 2014 (NSW) (Disability Inclusion Act) provides a good model of legislation embodying a rights-based approach consistent with the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCRPD), and we endorse the Guardianship Act incorporating the principles of this Act.
