An important part of our work is to strengthen the knowledge of families. Through the resources available in our online resource library the Inclusion Collection, we provide families with information that is both inspiring and practical and promote positive values about people with disability. 

Communiqué - Our quarterly e-newsletter to families 

The purpose of Communiqué is to provide the most up to date information about the issues that affect people with disability and the quest for inclusive lives. It highlights developments in our systemic advocacy efforts, new resources that are available, upcoming events - ours and others’, interesting snippets from around the state, nationally and internationally as well as drawing attention to issues that require long term planning and focus. It is our intention to keep you informed - Information is Power! 

If you would like to to be added to our mailing list to receive Communiqué please contact us.

Families for Change Journal 

Historically we published a quarterly Journal called Families for Change which focused on issues of importance to people with disability and their families.

The aim of the Journal was to encourage and support families to speak out for and on behalf of their family member, but also advocate for broader change on behalf of people with disability in general. Below you will find some of the copies of the Journals. For previous editions that are not available online please contact our Communications Coordinator.
