Committment to Access and Inclusion

The Social Development Centre Waterloo Region works to support inclusion and accessibility for persons with disabilities, their caregivers and agencies serving persons with disabilities in the Waterloo Region.  We have partnered with local community groups in order to create online and print resources to support persons with disabilities, as well as created space for a local group of persons with lived experience of disabilities or who are concerned wtih disability and human rights issues to meet. Disabilities and Human Rights Group is as well a member of the Poverty Free Kitchener-Waterloo Action Group and contributes to the development of the local framework for measuring the successful poverty elimination outcomes.
