‘Your life, your choice’ publications now available
'Your life, your choice' is a joint project of the Victorian Aboriginal Service and Office of the Public Advocate (OPA), funded by the Legal Services Board Grant Program 2017, to deliver culturally-appropriate and accessible information to Victoria's Koori community.
As part of this project, a suite of resources has been produced:
- Planning for your future (handbook)
- Planning for your future by making powers of attorney (fact sheet)
- Medical treatment decisions (fact sheet)
- Guardianship and Administration (fact sheet)
- Your life, your choice (brochure)
The publications will be delivered directly to Aboriginal health cooperatives and are available to download from the OPA website. Printed copies are available upon request.
While designed specifically for Victoria’s Koori community, the resources provide plain English information that may be of assistance to the wider Victorian community.
This project is an outcome of OPA's Koori Inclusion Action Plan and our organisation's commitment to strengthening the inclusion of Koori communities and culture in the work of the organisation.
