The mid 1980''s was an exciting time of review and change in the field of disability services in Australia. The Commonwealth Government had initiated a total review of all the services that they funded for people with a disability. The period of review and reform was prompted by the International Year of Disabled Persons in 1981. That year there was a great deal of discussion and debate about the limited range of services and supports which were available at that time. By 1986 a new piece of Commonwealth legislation was put in place, the Disability Services Act. That enabled the newly formed government department to fund new and responsive services to support people with a disability, in the community. CASSI was one such service. This web site has good information about the Disability Services Act. comlaw.gov.au/Series/C2004A03370 CASSI was set up in 1989 by a small group of families, along with some supporters and with the assistance of other services on the Gold Coast. This was a local example of a national movement to set up community based support services for people with a disability. In response to the new opportunities that the Commonwealth Government had made available, CASSI established its first services in those early days, two group homes. Right from the start, CASSI had the stated intention of setting up services to provide assistance to people with a disability in integrated settings.
