Community Partnerships and Engagement

Connecting communities, building awareness and advancing rights through collaboration and conversations.


Communities and people are at the heart of what we do at Inclusion BC. Our community partnerships and engagements aim to understand challenges, find solutions, and create more inclusive communities so everyone belongs. 

From inclusive housing and employment services and supports, to community-led collaborations on improving services and supports for children and youth with disabilities or support needs, our engagement campaigns always place people at the centre of our work.

Questions We Can Answer Now

Community partnerships and engagement efforts at local levels is critical to Inclusion BC’s advocacy work. If you have any questions or if you are looking for opportunities to partner with us, please get in touch. In the meantime, we might be able to answer a few of your questions here!

What if I have an idea for a community partnership or a community engagement campaign?

This is a fantastic question. We’re always looking ahead to anticipate community needs so we can build campaigns to create awareness, and drive collaborative work towards solutions. We’d love for you to share your ideas with us! Use the contact form to tell us your thoughts.

Are there grants I can access on behalf of my organization or community?

While some of our campaigns do have grant opportunities, there are none available right now. Be sure to check back, as we are always advocating for more provincial funding.

How can I access older campaigns that aren’t running anymore, but still have great information and insights to offer?

Thanks for asking! We put so much love and attention into all of our campaigns and we love to see them live on! Sadly, we can’t keep them all on our website forever. If this is important to you, please let us know.

Our approach to advocacy is guided by the United Nations Convention on the Rights of People with Disabilities, which recognizes the full citizenship and human rights of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Kerridan Dougen, Advocate
