Why Collect Evidence Introduction
In our first Module, we explored our area of focus. This resource concentrates on gathering evidence within disability peer organisations. These support organisations are founded upon their ambition to build the individual capacity of peer members through such programs. The information they collect could be used for a variety of purposes. Our primary objective is to ensure that this resource can support and assist peer organisations, enabling them to keep doing their important work within our changing disability sector.
We will now delve a little deeper and explore why peer organisations can benefit from gathering evidence. Such support entities need to consider how they can increase their evidence collection skills and expertise to ensure they can continue to operate and grow their peer programs. We explore the reason that characteristics of the peer program environment lead to the pulling together of information becoming more important. This is true in both the short and longer term. The theory of organisational capacity building will also be studied and deliberated. This will make it possible for peer organisations to keep doing what they are doing well – Build the capacity of individuals living with disability.
