We’d welcome your involvement.
We extend an invitation to take this opportunity to move forward together by building on what we know works, grounding new supports, services and systems rooted in evidence based practice and growing BC’s reputation as an international leader in Community Living and intellectual disability policy.
Partnership opportunities exist at various and multiple levels from supporting research projects and conferences, to establishing an endowment to create Canada’s first Research Chair in Intellectual Disability, right here at UBC.
We welcome a conversation with you.
The Centre is building a growing body of knowledge right here in BC. Research projects include home sharing, individualized funding, an evaluation of the Equipment and Assistive Technology Initiative, inclusive employment mapping, pre-natal and genetic testing, and youth transitions, an evaluation of the Giving in Action program. We are currently evaluating the national Ready, Willing and Able Project and launching the Transitioning Youth with Disabilities to Employment (TYDE) and the Sexual Health Knowledge Participatory Theatre projects.
While we access funding for academic based research, we do not have any core operational funding to offset administrative and infrastructure costs and support the ongoing coordination of project based activities.
We invite you to support our annual campaign. Our 2017-2018 goal is $25,000. We ask organizations to consider making a $1000 donation but would appreciate a contribution in an amount of your choice and ability. Your support makes our core research development, stakeholder and community engagement work (for example, co-hosting the BC SAF and IBC International Day of Persons with Disabilities Film Festival and supporting the I Am Voting initiative) possible.
Please contact us directly and we’d be pleased to talk with you more about how we can work together. We are committed to ensuring our research positively impacts the work your organization does every day to support individuals and families and we need your partnership to make this happen.
