Changing Lives, Changing Communities
by Harriet Ziegler.
This excellent plain-English description of Social Role Valorisation (SRV) has been created to introduce people to the theory and encourage them to consider how it may be relevant to them and their broader community.
As it states in the books:
“One principle should guide families, community service workers, governments and anyone else who cares about people who need some support. The principle is this: the goal of everything done with a person should be to ensure they get access to the good things in life – love and friendship, respect, the chance to develop their abilities. This is of course in addition to the basics, such as a safe and welcoming home, financial security and appropriate medical care“.
