REPORT CARD ON THE ROADMAP
This is a survey for self advocates, their parents and caregivers to fill out to give feedback to the government on their transformation process. Please fill out the survey and send back by the end of September. Thanks!
In June 2013, the Government of Nova Scotia accepted the work of a joint Community-Government Advisory Committee on Transforming the Services to Persons with Disabilities Program (the Roadmap). Prior to this, Community Homes Action Group (CHAG), a voluntary group, was formed to gather information and provide advocacy regarding the need for appropriate housing options for persons with developmental disabilities.
CHAG is interested in the opinions of the public on the status of services two years into the Roadmap. We are asking for your help. We are distributing a survey to health and social services professionals, families, self advocates, disability advocates, researchers and educators to assess Nova Scotians’ experience with the Roadmap for people with developmental disabilities. We will use the information to create a “report card” which we can share with the general public, families, government and the media. Our goal is to stimulate public and government awareness and promote action on the critical situations facing persons with developmental disabilities and their families.
Goals have been set, and recommendations have been made. What does it really look like for people living with developmental disabilities, their loved ones and service providers? Please help us to understand the current situation and continue to advocate for improved services by providing feedback about the NS Government’s progress on transforming services for people with developmental disabilities.
