Department of Community Services website: Services for Persons with Disabilities Transformation
There was an announcement from Premier Dexter on Aug 29, 2013 regarding the proposed transformation of Services for Persons with Disabilities in Nova Scotia. We strongly encourage you to read “the Roadmap” entitled Choice, Equality and Good Lives in Inclusive Communities. and ask to be a part of the process by calling 1-855-673-2400.
We need to work together to push forward a new direction for Services for Persons with Disabilities (SPD)! Individuals and families who rely on SPD desperately need choices that are truly person-centered. Nova Scotia will be a more vibrant and prosperous place for everyone when people with disabilities are supported to live in their communities of choice, and have opportunities to participate in meaningful ways. This is not too much to ask.
We need families and individuals to meet with their MLAs and let them know that The Roadmap can not remain on the shelf, but needs to be put into effect. The MLAs need to hear your stories!
