The Richmond Centre for Disability (RCD) is a resilient organization within an often challenging funding environment. We are participant-focused and committed to empowering our diverse, cross-disability membership. We do this by remaining approachable and responsive to member and stakeholder needs. Our flexible and resourceful Centre staff workcollaboratively with our participants. Thanks to this teamwork, and through our many activities and services,we regularly witness our members’ MOVING FORWARD with perseverance in self-determination and growth toward independence.
The RCD is a grass root organization run by people with disabilities for people with disabilities. Every year close to 28,000 Canadians with disabilities, their families, communities and stakeholders benefit from our support and services across the Lower Mainland.
We take a cross and multi-disability, self-directed and inclusive approach. We support Independent Living (IL) for persons with disabilities. IL is not a special interest; IL is mainstream and serves entire communities. IL principles and practices are based on human dignity and individual rights for all, enabling and empowering access and adaptation; not maintenance, institutionalization and lack of control. IL is about people – all people.
