Social Inclusion


Our organization has been a key driver in building a globally recognized inclusive education system in the province. Through advocacy and support to parents, educator and administrator training, on-site consultation, and classroom presentations, we work to ensure children with an intellectual or developmental disability are included in educational and social opportunities in their neighbourhood school.

An Inclusive Adult Life

From learning life skills and creating key connections for a meaningful life in community, to providing training to become workforce ready, or successfully complete post-secondary education, Inclusion NB is there at every step of the way as graduates enter young adulthood.

Inclusion NB provides adults with the support they want and need to live a fulfilling life, in their chosen community. We support adults with an intellectual or developmental disability to find and maintain safe, suitable housing, connect them to recreation and groups in their community, and help them access the province’s Disability Support Program and other resources to address their needs.

Life in Community

Inclusion NB is guided by the belief that strong communities are formed when everyone has the opportunity to participate and contribute. We support people with an intellectual or developmental disability to be and feel like part of their communities. We focus on connecting people with accessible and affordable housing, community partners and services, and recreational activities based on their interests and goals to create a natural network of support around them.

Mental Health

Within the past decade there have been many changes in the health care field regarding individuals living with a dual diagnosis of mental health and intellectual or developmental disability. Specialized caregivers and support workers provide services, for the most part. However, there may be times when family members and volunteers step in to provide support and guidance to an individual who has an intellectual or developmental disability and a mental health concern.
