Can I help?

Advocacy at the local, provincial and national level has been a priority of the Association since its beginning. It is through advocacy -the process of speaking up on someone else's behalf- that society will become a more welcoming and accessible place.

The SACL employs several Advocacy Workers who are experienced and trained to support individuals with disabilities and their families to work through issues in their local communities.

Advocacy Workers help people deal with educational, health and social systems, with specific questions of assistance, and in cases where families or individuals believe their human rights or benefits as a Saskatchewan citizen are being neglected or ignored.

Contact the SACL for the name of an Advocacy Worker assigned to your area in the province. Call (306) 955-3344, fax (306) 373-3070 or email: [email protected]. Or click on these for information on specific advocacy and support programs:
