“After I turned 18, I was kind of own my own. I no longer had the supports I used to have. I didn’t know who to see or who to talk to.” – Stacey
Life’s big transitions like graduation, moving, and starting a career are cause for both excitement and trepidation for all of us. For someone living with a disability, the transition into adulthood is especially daunting. Achieving the age of majority usually means increased freedoms – like voting or drinking. But, for a young adult with a disability, it means they are abruptly cut off from essential services and resources.
However, the Cerebral Palsy Association of BC is here to help. Our Navigator for Youth offers support, information and referral to help teenagers, young adults and their families plan for this important transition to adult services. We are available to help you find the resources and services that you need to look towards adulthood living your best life.
We are grateful to the GSC Community Giving Program for their generous support of the Navigator service.
