Important Covid-19 Update
To help prevent the spread of COVID-19 in the community and to protect our staff, visitors and tenants, the Inclusion BC advocacy team is operating remotely until further notice.
Advocates are available by phone and email during our regular office hours, 9:00 to 4:00 Monday through Friday. Our advocates are not able to attend in-person meetings but can call-in or join virtually if required.
If you need advocacy support, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 1-844-488-4321.
Thank you for your understanding, and we wish you safety and good health during this difficult time.
About our Advocacy Program
Inclusion BC provides free advocacy support to families of children and youth with diverse learning needs, adults with intellectual disabilities and their families who need our help. This could mean connecting you with resources in your community or supporting you to advocate for the services you need.
Inclusion BC’s advocates are skilled, experienced and knowledgeable. If you’re not sure who you should be talking to, get in touch and we’ll connect you with the right person or organization.
Inclusion BC staff are primarily guided by the United Nations Convention on the Rights of People with Disabilities (UNCRPD) which recognizes the full citizenship and human rights of people with intellectual disabilities.
Policy and Systems Advocacy
When we talk to families and individuals we learn about what’s working and what’s not and what needs to change at a policy and systems level. Check out our campaigns to learn more about how we’re trying to make a difference and change systems for the better.
We’ve collected resources that have proven helpful to families and individuals over the years. If what you’re looking for isn’t on this page, please get in touch with one of our advocates!
