Rooted in Lived Experience

Mar 9 2018

Groups With Lived ExperienceOnly being rooted in lived experience of people in the region can we aspire to be successful in fulfilling our mandate. Trudy Beaulne's approach to social policy development was anchored firmly in support and collaboration with small groups where people came to find resources, to share what they know and to take action together. Groups such as Disabilities and Human Rights and Poverty Free KW have been advising us over the years as we developed projects on poverty elimination, social assistance reform, accessibility standards, visitable housing, service delivery and more. If you want to join one of the groups or be an ally, you can come to one of the upcoming meeting at our Centre.
