SUPPORT & ADVOCACY
We Help You Navigate the System

We provide individualized support and advocacy to individuals with intellectual disabilities and their families. Our Community Inclusion Consultants will assist in the resolution of any issues that may be occurring in your life – regardless of how large or small the issue is, where you live, your age or whatever your need is.

Need Support?
Our Community Inclusion Consultants Can Help.

If you live with an intellectual disability or if you know someone with an intellectual disability and need support or advocacy Inclusion Saskatchewan can help. We don’t have a formal intake process, and will work with anyone regardless of what the intellectual disability may be. We do not require a diagnosis, have a specific IQ requirement, or need to have a referral. We are contracted by the Ministry of Social Services to provide advocacy service for individuals with intellectual disabilities & their families.

*Note: All staff at Inclusion Saskatchewan have had criminal records checks including the vulnerable sector check. Inclusion Saskatchewan provides all of our support based on best practices in inclusion and on Inclusion Saskatchewan's Statements of Belief and Positions on Social Issues

Individual Support

The work of the Community Inclusion Consultant is incredibly varied and differs from person to person. We can't provide a fully comprehensive list of everything we do, but this list should provide some insight into the work that we typically do:

  • Help clearly identify issues or problems.

  • Attend meetings (we recommend that you never attend a meeting alone).

  • Provide research on rights, policies, procedures, options, programs, etc.

  • Navigate appeals.

  • Help you to access programs.

  • Provide referrals to programs and services.

  • Assist with completing paperwork.

  • Ensure you are being valued, supported and included.

Navigating the System

Inclusion Saskatchewan's Community Inclusion Consultants provide support by helping you to navigate systems. These can be government systems, non-profit programs, or privately owned businesses.
