The Quality Framework Project is going back on the road!

Quality Framework for Community Living DisABILITY Services

Community Consultation Plan

In October 2017, the Department of Families and Abilities Manitoba entered into a partnership to improve how we understand and measure quality of life and the services provided by Community Living DisABILITY Service (CLDS) funded agencies. To help with the development of a quality framework, we asked the following questions:

    1. What does a good life look like? What outcomes are present when people with disabilities (or any of us) are living a good life?
    2. How do we know when people are living a good life? How do we measure or discover this in a consistent way?
    3. What do we need to do to support people to live a good life?  What standards need to be met to ensure this is the case?
    4. What tools will help service providers improve their services or help people in the best way possible? How do we continue to build capacity and encourage growth for all service providers?

In the winter of 2018, we visited communities throughout the Province to gather perspectives on these questions. At that time, we promised to return to these communities to share what we learned and how we hope to move forward together.  We are doing this in June!
