Case Management

For planning purposes, CLPS will ensure a team approach to case management. CLPS will assume the lead agency role when multiple agencies are involved. The Community Inclusion and Support Facilitator will provide Service Coordination. Specifically the role of Community Inclusion and Support Facilitator will be to:

a) Promote and facilitate an inclusion based approach that links the person to community based services and supports

b) Promote and facilitate opportunities that connect each person to the community effectively and empower them to advocate on their own behalf and increase their capacity and potential to do so.
