Lusi Faiva - Lusi Faiva is of Sāmoan descent and was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at two years old. On the recommendation of a doctor, she was admitted to Kimberley Centre, and lived there until she was seven. At Kimberley, Lusi experienced emotional, medical, and cultural neglect. She will talk about how institutions dehumanised disabled people, and that care being provided by disability support services today still fundamentally operate under a similar system with a lack of respect for freedom of choice.
