Citizenship is about experiencing human rights, responsibilities, and opportunities.
For many people, including people who have an intellectual disability, it also means belonging.
- daycares, schools, colleges and universities
- places of work, culture, and recreation
- worship and spiritual fellowship
- politics and government
- economic exchange
- family, relationships, intimate partnerships, neighbourhoods
Supporting people who have an intellectual disability to belong makes good economic sense.
It also helps creates communities that are vibrant, strong and diverse.
