Community Participation Supports

People participating in local recreation, leisure and volunteer opportunities in the community.

We link adults who have an intellectual disability to meaningful leisure, recreation, practical learning and volunteer opportunities, with daily activities that are unique to each person’s interests.

Get Involved

Community Participation Supports are based out of the various communities we serve across Essex County.

People participate in activities that reflect their specific interests and abilities.

Support workers provide assistance when needed and are there to inspire, encourage and work to ensure people are able to participate fully and safely in the activities they have chosen.

For families and people looking for activities in Essex County, take a look at our Community Resources and Activities Guide. It can be downloaded by clicking HERE.
