Justice, Fairness and Equity


Download the Code of Ethics as a PDF

As a DSP, I will affirm the human rights as well as the civil rights and responsibilities of the people I support. I will promote and practice justice, fairness, and equity for the people I support and the community as a whole.

Furthermore, as a DSP, I will:

  • Assist the people I support to access opportunities and resources in the community that are available to everyone.
  •  Facilitate the expression and understanding of rights and responsibilities with the people I support.
  •  Understand the guardianship or other legal representation of the people I support, and work in partnership with legal representatives to assure that the person’s preferences and interests are honored.
