Risk of Isolation for Persons with Severe Disabilities
A significant number of clients who have severe disabilities are not able to access services post-graduation either due to their inability to meet the criteria of accessing existing services, incompatible services and/or long waitlist to access services.
Bringing and Facilitating Access to Support Services for Persons with Severe Disabilities
This project seeks to:
- Understand the needs and life goals of the persons with disabilities and facilitate access to relevant social services or community resources such as volunteers;
- Provide individualised care planning to support transition of persons with severe disabilities from school to community;
- Foster a community network of care to continually engage the clients to prevent regression and provide support services;
- Develop a toolkit to enable the Social Service Offices to better support the clients.
Persons with disabilities and their families will be able to tap into social services and community resources to enable these persons to continue to live a meaningful and engaged life in the community after they graduate from school.
