Wellington Dufferin Family Network

Facilitation Wellington Dufferin has been exploring how we can support families of people who have a developmental disability in Wellington and Dufferin Counties to come together to connect, learn, share information, and support one another.   We want to hear directly from you about what families are looking for in a family network, and to plan out the role that FWD can play in meeting that need.  

Please share your experiences, ideas, and suggestions for building a strong family network in your community!
