What is the Social Networking Group?
This program enables a group of people with and without disabilities to come together to learn and share about making and sustaining social connections. The Social Networking Group started in January 2011 as a means of addressing social isolation of people with disabilities. The group aims to promote equality and a sense of belonging for people with disabilities.
WE WANT YOU!
