All-party report on developmental disabilities, looks promising

The report by the Select Committee on Developmental Services, mentioned here, which promises to eliminate waitlists for services for people with developmental disabilities, looks very promising.

At WoodGreen Community Services, we have seen firsthand the effects of long waitlists on our clients with developmental disabilities. The lack of adequate funding, supportive housing and day program options is an ongoing challenge for our clients in regards to having their basic needs met.

The commitment outlined by the all-party Select Committee Report is a positive step towards creating a sense of security for individuals with developmental disabilities and their families. For example, an increase in funding could mean that “John” can afford transportation to visit food banks, to attend day programs and to participate more fully in the community. Eliminating waitlists will create opportunities for people with developmental disabilities to lead more fulfilling lives.

We are confident that the proposed investment represents a long-term commitment to increased funding for the developmental services sector. The hope is that this funding will lead to ongoing, increased community participation and an increased sense of security for individuals with developmental disabilities and their families

WoodGreen's Adult Protective Service Workers work with people with developmental disabilities, and their families.
