Creating the Conditions for a Valued Workforce [PDF]

Our Purpose: To Create the Conditions for the Emergence of Valued Support Workers

Opportunity depends on… …relationships – ability to collaborate …how staff see people
…staff competency & connections …commitment to changing community to increase inclusion
…level of control people have over how service $ is spent
…flexibility in use of resources …design of services (e.g. support for people in own home vs group living)
