Neighbourhood Based Family Connections in Surrey/White Rock

Within the context of the dramatic demographic growth of Surrey (and the exponential growth in families with young children and the diversity of these families) and the limited neighbourhood infrastructure (geographic distance and transit issues that impose barriers) to support these families, the project will provide enhanced supports and resources to families through the creation of family resource networks or hubs.

Victoria Disability Resource Centre

A GPS to Meaningful Employment Opportunities for Persons with Disabilities

We want to create a continuum of sevices that will resutl in concrete systemic change and facilitate the employability of persons with disabilities. An individualized, non-prescriptive approach will encompass the entire process of reaching sustainable employment. This model will begin with a comprehensive person centred planning process that addresses barriers the individual encounters. Clients will be provided with a facilitated strategic planning process. Then the client will be matched with a mentor who will support them towards their employability goal. Secondarily, the VDRC has a history of facilitating disability awareness training with various stakeholders. However, this training has not been designed specifically with a focus on employment issues. We intend to modify this training to increase employers' awareness of and comfort level with addressing disability issues. Following the training, we will develop a workplace based mentorship program so that there is cross learning between the employer and person(s) with disabilities. Also, to follow on the work developed with employers by the Community Council's Quality of Life Challenge, we would develop a community based employer network interested in addressing systemic issues related to disability.
