Peer Support

Peer Support Programs allow individuals with disabilities to share experiences and knowledge. Participants share information about managing a disability and help each other in developing strategies to overcome barriers.

We offer one-to-one support, a weekly social group, and a monthly diners' club. For more information contact the centre at 613-542-8353 or Join the Diners’ Club once a month when we visit accessible local restaurants.

Direct Funding Self-managed Attendant Services enables adults with physical disabilities to become employers of their own attendants. Attendants assist with routine activities of living, such as dressing, grooming and bathing. As employers, participants are fully responsible for managing their own employees within a budget that is developed on an individual basis. For more information: Direct Funding Ontario.
