Disability Social Connections

Welcome to Disability Social Connections!

I started Disability Social Connections in early January 2021 in high school. The initial purpose was to provide disability support work to my godmother’s daughter, whom I got along with well beforehand, on the weekends around my weekday studies. A few months after taking her to birthday parties, I saw the complete joy of her and all her peers at these birthday parties that happened occasionally each year. I thought I would try to offer youth with disabilities the opportunity to hang out every weekend in a social group. After I conducted my first social group for youth with disabilities, I realised that my thesis was correct; the energy in the social groups was equal to, if not greater than, the energy at the birthday parties. That is what formed the Disability Social Connections weekly social group! 

 

Since starting university, I have been able to meet with people of similar character and nature. These are my fellow Disability Social Connection support workers on outings. As a team, we are able to increase the scope of our impact and help as many youths with a disability as possible. 

 

The growth of Disability Social Connections will always be a core objective of mine, and I hope we can help you or someone in your community with our services.

"Initially my daughter was invited on a social gathering with her friends where Blake was the other child’s social worker, I instantly saw how amazingly he interacted with the children an showed a true interest in his Job. We weren’t actually looking into getting a social work for our daughter but after seeing our daughter respond so well with Blake we decided to reach out and see if he knew anyone willing to take her on, to our surprise he had availability for her. We are very thankful for Blake he is always on time, great communication skills with both us and our daughter and shows genuine care and compassion in his work. We highly recommend Blake to anyone needing a social worker."
