Everyday Ordinary Lives Group
“We are family and friends of people with developmental disabilities who want to live an everyday, ordinary life in their own homes, neighbourhoods and communities. We are committed to helping them achieve this. We have come together around the shortage of funding to pay for support workers. There are many stories about meaningful community involvement and the inclusion of our family members and friends. These stories are made possible by our dedication, support worker funding (often called direct funding) as well as good facilitation and planning.”
Ontario Independent Facilitation Network
We are a network of independent facilitators, people who have a disability/self-advocates, families, and agency representatives (including facilitators) who are committed to the development and preservation of a provincial Community of Practice for independent facilitation and planning.
