An issues and policy paper from the NSW peak body for people with intellectual disability focussing on the relationship between NDIS and people with experience of the criminal justice system.

Useful for senior managers considering their organisation's responses and readiness to meet the needs of people with disability who have often been marginalised or ignored in broader support networks.

Strongly focused on awareness, understanding and policy responses that govern operational responses this is not a how-to manual.

Worth reading if an organisation is likely to be coming into more frequent contact with clients with some history or risk of engagement with criminal justice systems.
