What is consumer participation and human rights? Why is it important to involve clients in the development of programs? What would be a consequence of not consulting with community members in which are affected by issues? 

Consumer Participation is promoting and supporting the people in making their own decisions about their own treatment and care. Ensuring that the programs and services
meet the guidelines and needs of consumers. It is the engagement or involvement of people who are apart of the services which may assist them with mental health whether it was for them seeking assistance or is already receiving treatment. Human rights are basically allowing the person/consumer/client to make their own choice/ decision. They are an advocate for themselves (Australian Government, 2018). They have a “right” to speak and decide how they want to be treated, or who can treat them. It is important to allow clients to advocate and make decisions on their own as this is a source “empowerment” it allows them to feel and be. “independent”, “their body/mind/soul” and we have to respect their decision. Some consequences of not consulting with community members in which are affected by issues.
may lead up to complications such as members might not be treated correctly, members.
may be provided with the wrong care, or medication etc. If not consulting with the person, it may cause health issues and other problems.

What are 3 barriers to consumer participation? 

Three Barriers to Consumer participation may include:

  • Limited accessibility on transportation
  • Lack of understanding/knowledge of people with disabilities, therefore not having
    access to any proper equipment for them when participating in sport activities.
  • Limited opportunities and programs, limited access to support services

Describe 3 ways you would engage the targt group in participating in developing a service program 

Three ways in which we could engage a target group in participating and developing a service program may involve: (youth group)

  • Holding a sporting event at a park for example: touch football and a BBQ, this would be
    inviting the youth, to socialise and collaborate together in unity, and hopefully, get along
    with each other to initiate and put together service plans in which would benefit everyone
    and their time input.
  • Holding after school activities which would cater to gaining further training and experience
    for work for example: Barista training, teaching/training the young in the kitchen, and giving them lessons in how to make coffee, this would provide them with, an experience with working in a business and with people, social experience, teaching them simple skills which would benefit them in the long run (Institute for Social Participation Seminar Series, 2011).
  • Having the youth gather in an environment such as a youth centre, brainstorming things that they wanted to pursue in life, and finding an activity in which would benefit them in decision-making for the future and having a guest speaker who is young and have similar. background or interests but has achieved or is achieving something big, and to inspire the youth, and encourage them that they can do whatever they want, as long as they put their mind and heart into action.

How would you evaluate your service program? Provide 2 examples.

I would evaluate my service program by:

Providing the buildings entry/exit(s) with an electric/digital feedback form which has a simple questionnaire where the person who is receiving the service may enter in, by tapping on the faces (satisfactory, not so satisfied, or un-satisfactory faces as options) this would help the improvement of staff performance etc (UserLike, 2021).
