Social Role Valorisation

The more roles a person has, and the more valued those roles are, the more likely that person is to have the good things in life.

What is Social Role Valorisation?

Social Role Valorisation (SRV)  is an empirically based theory that guides Imagine More’s work. SRV helps us understand why people with disability are devalued. It also tells us that the best ways to shift the devalued status of a person with disability are to support the person to

  • take part and contribute in the community through valued social roles
  • pay attention to the image of the person and those that support the person
  • develop and increase the person’s skills and competencies
