Independent Living Skills
Development Program

Through the Independent Living Skills Development Program, we help one another to exercise our rights and provide support to people pursuing individual advocacy goals. The Centre does not usually advocate for the individual consumer; rather, they provide the advice and the tools each person needs to advocate his/her own point of view.

By organizing seminars on various skills, the Centre gives information that is different than what is found elsewhere.

A lot of emphasis is put on the individual as he or she develops skills that are perhaps not confrontational but teaches them to fight and negotiate for their rights.

At our Centre, the Independent Living Skills Development Program can include one to one communication, workshops that develop useful skills for advocacy, or a series of workshops on self advocacy.
