Please be advised that the I-Decide Project with Legal Assistance of Windsor has ended.

 

Since May of 2018, Legal Assistance of Windsor had been offering new legal services through The I Decide Project. The purpose of the project was to deliver rights-based education and services to community members with intellectual disabilities, in order to promote self-directed decisions and planning.

The I Decide Project helped with:

  • supported decisions about personal care or finances (money and belonging)

  • creating or revoking (cancelling) a Power of Attorney

  • challenging Guardianship applications or decisions made by existing guardians

  • setting goals and connecting to community supports and resources

  • staying safe and reporting abuse

The I Decide Documentary

In December of 2018, we launched a documentary called “I Decide,” directed by Chris Rabideau and Christie Nelson. The documentary highlights the journey of a local resident labelled with an intellectual disability, who has succeeded in putting himself at the centre of his own decision-making. You can watch the video here.
