Spirituality: who gives a toss?

Andy is a Uniting Church in Australia minister, in the role of Disability Inclusion with the Synod of Victoria and Tasmania.

He is undertaking social action research as part of Ph.D. studies exploring the spirituality of adults with intellectual disabilities. He has partnered with the state-wide advocacy body VALID (Victorian Advocacy League for Individuals with a Disability), and will provide an update from 14 recently completed interviews. As part of the research, a ‘Statement of Spirituality’ is proposed to be adopted by VALID.
