About Us Our Beliefs

We believe:

  • Citizenship involves belonging, rights, responsibilities, relationships and contributions.

  • People with disabilities have both the capacity and responsibility to exercise their citizenship.

  • People with disabilities have unique and critical contributions to make to the health and well being of our communities.

  • Focusing on disability and handicap overshadows an individual’s gifts, skills and talents.

  • Our communities and neighbourhoods are inherently resilient and hospitable.

  • Ensuring the active presence of people with disabilities in community life benefits families, neighbourhoods and communities.
