Accessing Residential Support in Regina, SK.

The Regina Residential Services Co-Management (RRSCC) is a partnership between community organizations and government. It functions to review and respond to requests for residential services, develop and monitor programs and services and allocate resources. The RRSCC is the single point of entry for individuals requiring residential services, providing coordinated planning, referral and service development and review.

The RRSCC partnership reflects a vision that recognizes the shared responsibility of our members in meeting the residential needs of individuals with intellectual and physical disabilities in Regina. While each member had distinct skills, resources and capacities, all understand the importance of supporting one another as we operate and develop services and programs. We believe that services and programs must respond to the needs of the individuals whom they presently or will serve.

youth week

Youth Has No Age

National Youth Week is May 1 – 7 every year, that is dedicated to the celebration of youth and their active participation in their community.

Whether it is recreation, drama, sport, dance, civic engagement, art, volunteerism or leadership, every day young people are involved in meaningful activities during their discretionary time.

National Youth Week is a time to honour their involvement!

Through activities, such as recreation and art, youth learn five basic life skills, which include social, moral, ethical, physical and cognition competence.

Additionally, through their involvement, young people are meeting the seven developmental needs which they need in order to feel fully engaged in the world around then.

These needs are: self-definition, physical activity, meaningful participation, mastery and achievement, positive interaction with adults and peers, structure and clear limits, and creative expression.

Youth has no age

 

Lets take this moment as an opportunity for our community to celebrate youth.

Shake our groove at Sir Dancelot,

expand our imagination through Next Chapter Book Club, or

create new friendships with Best Buddies.

The options are yours.

Happy National Youth Week!
