You’re invited to: PERSON-CENTRED SUPPORT

WHAT IT MEANS AND WHY IT’S IMPORTANT TO COMMUNITY LIVING GUELPH WELLINGTON

DID YOU KNOW? Over 400 CLGW employees to date have participated in a mandatory 3-hour workshop on Person-Centred Support. A similar person-centred module, called ‘My Voice. My Choice.’ is presently in development and will be offered optionally to People We Support (PWS) in early spring. We are particularly proud of the fact that ‘My Voice. My Choice.’ training will be led by some people we support interested in public speaking.

Family members are invited to join the conversation. Discover for yourself what person-centred support really means, and why Community Living Guelph Wellington is invested in this training for staff and the people we support.

  • Tuesday March 19, 6-8pm (CLGW Guelph Admin Building, Claire Brown Room)
  • Tuesday March 26, 6-8pm (Fergus Community Living Centre, Conference Room)
  • Tuesday April 2, 6-8pm (CLGW Guelph Admin Building, Claire Brown Room)

An open letter to Bryan Adams, and his concert team

Thank you, to Bryan Adams and team

It doesn’t have to take much, but when we try to create equity, it can have such a tremendous impact. Thank you Bryan Adams and team for doing just that for someone we support at the Kitchener Memorial Auditorium Complex in City of Kitchener.

Open Letter to Bryan and his team… in a moment, you did something that may have seemed ordinary and right. This moment, though, was extraordinary for us. You and your team saw the person we support as a citizen; as someone worthy enough to enjoy the show like anyone else, and made the accommodation to make it happen.

Thank you for creating equity and recognizing that with a little accommodation, M’s price for admission was just as valuable as her able-to-stand friends.
