Community Living Access… Inspiring Possibilities

Community Living Access strives to support a community where every person contributes, belongs, and enjoys a fulfilling life. They’re an important part of ensuring an inclusive community by advocating with, empowering and supporting people with disabilities to live the lives they choose. They support people and their families in Haldimand and Norfolk, offering a wide range of person-centered services based on individual needs. They work collaboratively with a variety of partners across the communities that they serve.

We talk about people with disabilities, and we say they have ‘special needs’, they don’t have special needs. They have the same needs as you and I.

Community Living Access supports people to participate in their communities in ways that are meaningful and make sense to each person. Sometimes this can be finding a job or volunteer opportunities, meeting up with friends, recreational activities, or attending local events. An inclusive community is essential in allowing everyone to have a sense of belonging.

May is Community Living Month, a province-wide annual awareness campaign to promote true inclusion for people who have developmental disabilities, and their families. In support and celebration of this, we’ve donated 30 local event passes (from our friends at Norfolk County Fair!) to Community Living Access. Wishing everyone a great time attending the Fairgrounds Festival, Norfolk Night Market, and Norfolk County Fair enjoying these incredible local events!
