Since May of 2018, Legal Assistance of Windsor has been offering new legal services through TheI Decide Project. The purpose of the project is 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 can help 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.
