Thinking about Individualised Supports and Funding. Linda Perry of Vela Microboards Association – Community Conversations.

January 8, 2015

LindaPerryEach month we’ve been hosting a speaker on a topic of interest to families, folks we support and our team members and communities that we’re part of.  Please feel free to share this invitation with others.   This month we have Linda Perry of the Vela Microboard Association talking about individualised funding options available to folks who are interested in having more control over their lives and dollars.   We know from friends around the world that this isn’t just a different set of forms to get filled out, but a different way of building supports for those who wish to pursue this.

Linda has spoken across Canada and around the world on individualization, individualized funding and how Vela Microboards has grown over the years to support about 800 folks around British Columbia, with sister organizations in other countries.   Spectrum has always loved microboards and were, at one time, proud to be supporting the most microboards in the province!  (Now I think that honour goes to the Langley Association and good on you all LACL!).

As with our other community conversations there will be a talk of about 45 minutes, 15 minutes of questions and then time for chat and tea.   We hope you will join us for this event.  Over the past six months we’ve had talks on the Next Chapter Book Club, family involvement in supported employment, spirituality and person centered planning.

6:30 – 8:30, January 14th, 2015.  Spectrum Office, 3231 Kingsway

See you there!
