      A Personal Information Record for Every Australian

      Every individual and family who has used services in disability, early childhood
      intervention, education for children with special needs, mental illness, chronic
      illness and aged care knows that information about the social, medical and
      educational history of individuals is dispersed amongst a myriad of disconnected
      providers, practitioners and bureaucrats.

      We know we need a consolidated record and information tool, in electronic form,
      to drive Self-Directed Servic
es. 

      Governments and providers can't do it. As a partnership of individuals, families,
      services,
businesses and governments, SEP is very interested in
      leading the development of a consolidated Personal Information Record, where
      individuals and families are in control of access to and use of the information
      system, so that it operates in accordance with an ethical, person-centred
      framework.

      We would like to hear from individuals, families, service providers,
      businesses and investors who want to work collaboratively to make this happen
      and end the decades of dithering by governments.

      Individual Learning Plans

      Every child in Australian schools should receive an education that is tailored to
      their individual needs. Governments and schools (public and private) will say they
      agree with this goal. In reality, our schools still operate on a nineteenth
      century institutional model which assumes that all children are basically the
      same (except for the two categories of 'gifted' and the 'impaired').

      Individualised learning should be a right for all children. Finland has led the world
      in individualising learning plans for all students, but in Australia the concept has
      been confined to some students with disabilities, and even then, it has been poorly
      implemented.

      As a partnership of individuals, families, services, businesses and governments,
      we
would like to develop a collaborative project to promote the importance of
      individualised learning, and develop a system for enabling individual learning plans,
      in electronic form, to be widely used by parents and educators. Our commitment is
      for a system where families are in control of access to and use of the Individual
      Learning Plan
,
so that it operates in accordance with an ethical, person-centred
      framework.

      We would like to hear from individuals, families, service providers,
      businesses and investors who want to work collaboratively to make this happen.

Family Income Management Plans
     
     
Noel Pearson has developed the use of Family Income Management Plans
      amongst several indigenous communities on Cape York. The goal has been to
      prevent the drain of family resources on grog, allow money to be put aside regularly
      for education, and to develop savings and home ownership plans.

      Politicians and policy makers in Canberra are struggling with issues of welfare
      reform. They can never get the idea of starting at the family and community level.

      Family Income Management Plans can work in ethnically diverse and urban
      communities too.

      As a partnership of individuals, families, services, businesses and governments,  we
      are keen to facilitate the development of Family Income Management Plans
      in communities around Australia. Our commitment is for a model where families
      and communities are in control of their plans,
so that they operate in accordance
    
 with an ethical, family-centred framework.

     
We would like to hear from individuals, families, service providers,
      businesses and investors who want to work collaboratively to make this happen.
