ILC Grant Announcement

December 16, 2020

We’re proud to announce that Mamre has recently received an Information, Linkages and Capacity Building Grant (ILC). We will be using this grant to create a program that will serve as an updated, modernised and refreshed “Pave the Way.” This program will focus on empowering individuals to decide what a good life looks like to them. As well as how to achieve it through measurable steps.

This exciting program will be delivered via online e-learning modules. These modules are designed to work alongside individuals and their carers to learn more about independent planning and supported decision making. The information will focus on removing the barriers to self-determination for individuals with a disability by:

  • Demonstrating the importance of autonomy, choice and preferences;
  • Why creating circles of support and having social connectedness is key for creating a good life;
  • Providing practical examples on how to invite people into your circle of support;
  • Discussing the concept of home (for instance, available accommodation choices);
  • Outlining the practical steps for living independently; and
  • How to ensure that an individual with a disability is always at the centre of planning and decision making.

In addition to these modules, participants will be invited into Communities of Practice. These safe-space groups will be where participants can discuss their goals and share their victories. As well as build a community of peer support. Participants will also be encouraged to create their own online support communities as well.

We look forward to bringing you more information about this ILC funded program soon.
