Community Participation and Home Life
With the right supports people with an intellectual disability can participate fully in every aspect of community life and can make choices about how and where they want to live. NBACL provides planning and supports to adults with an intellectual disability and their families to ensure they are well supported along this important phase of their lives.
NBACL seeks to connect individuals to recreation and active living opportunities in their communities and to train staff and volunteers to accommodate individuals with varying levels of ability.
Supported living is about people having choice, a decent and secure home, personalized supports, and opportunities to develop relationships and participate in the broader community in which they live.
The Social Inclusion Program is a new program of NBACL that works primarily with adults and youth aged 17 and older who have an intellectual disability. The program seeks to assist people to be included in their community.
Social Inclusion Facilitators can help with connections to community by identifying ways for young adults and adults with an intellectual disability to become involved.
Personal support networks are an important aspect of planning for a safe and secure future for people with disabilities.
NBACL offers an array of education, training and resources to families, professionals, service providers and others who support children and adults with an intellectual disability.
