South Australian Council on Intellectual Disability (SACID) evaluation: strengthening involvement of people with intellectual disability
South Australian Council on Intellectual Disability (SACID)
June 2020 - March 2023
Publications will be posted here when available.
This evaluation develops and uses tools to measure change and SACID’s achievement of ILC outcomes. The evaluation is framed using the well-tested participatory evaluation framework (Weaver & Cousins, 2004). This establishes robust goals for participation and dimensions for testing depth and quality in participation (i.e. control of decision-making; diversity of participants; power relations; implementation; depth of participation) (Weaver & Cousins, 2004). The evaluation analyses how SACID’s peer and capacity building initiatives contribute to: the skills and knowledge of people with intellectual disability and families; the capacity of people with intellectual disability to contribute to co-design and organisational decision-making; and the effectiveness of improvements to organisational systems.
Findings will be directly reviewed by the organisation (SACID) and recommendations will be implemented into their practices.
