Innovative Community Participation

At Cosy Home and Community Care, we offer innovative community participation services designed to support the people with disability in building skills that allow them to participate actively in their community, events and programmes. 

We have well-trained Community Engagement Practitioners who hand-hold and enable you to build your capacity and resilience. Thereby, you can eventually move away from the service to informal community support and/or a job.

Innovative community participation services include the following

Workshops on finding suitable employment
Mentoring to overcome challenges and continue your job
Assistance and support for setting up your own small business
Classes to learn new skills or improve existing ones
Participation in free community events

How innovative community participation services can help you

Community participation is a win-win for all. Connecting with other people boosts a sense of well-being in disabled people and creates possibilities for them to build health, skills, knowledge and employment prospects. Your involvement also strengthens the community and ensures that more such innovative community participation programmes can be offered.
