Self-Advocate Committee
The word self-advocate is used to describe people with a developmental disability who speak for themselves and on behalf of other people with developmental disabilities. Some people may need support to express their wishes. Self-Advocates on the Committee will make sure that the Board Directors know what the self-advocates’ needs and wishes are. They:

  • Discuss and make suggestions for action by the Board of Directors on policies and issues that affect individuals receiving supports and services
  • Make sure that Community Living actively involves self-advocates in decisions that affects their lives
  • Set-up Work Groups that look at specific issues about rights and fair treatment, needs and interests of people supported by Community Living Renfrew County South

For inquiries contact Lucy McCordick-Boisvenue at lmccordick@clrcs.com and phone 613-432-6763 ext. 110.
