Ensuring quality requires a multifaceted approach. The development of this initial framework for quality assurance begins with these four assumptions supported by research and everyday practice:
- Vulnerable people often feel powerless.
- People with disabilities are often isolated.
- Each person has his/her own unique strengths and needs.
- Enhancing quality is more about the personal values and principles.
Therefore anything that can be done to empower the individual, provide for optimum participation in community according to the individual’s strengths and needs, based on values and principles will increase the quality of life for vulnerable people. Mar. 2005
