She also describes the seven organisational objectives of a service model developed by ADEC (Action on Disability within Ethnic Communities), a Victorian community based organisation. These are: service location and contact; needs assessment; access to information; internal information systems; culturally relevant services; appropriate staff and work practices; and consumer participation.
