SARC Members are Committed to Independence, Inclusion, and Opportunity

It’s a great place to be; it’s where I belong. I get to be with warm hearted people. I can write stories there. People at the organization help to do things on my MAP – I go on trips with friends; I volunteer at the Clothes Basket and now at the Food Bank.”

Who are SARC Members?

SARC Members are community-based organizations that are dedicated to supporting people experiencing disability to live in, work in, and enjoy their community.

There are approximately 100 SARC Members located all across Saskatchewan.

SARC Members Provide Supports Tailored to People’s Needs and Goals

SARC Members know that each person is unique. They also know that you can’t provide great services to someone without really knowing that person as an individual. SARC Members are dedicated to real, meaningful relationships with the people they support, which translates to services that work for each person and change over time as each person’s needs and goals change.

SARC Members have been champions of person-centred services for years, having worked in consultation with Saskatchewan’s Ministry of Social Services to develop The Comprehensive Personal Planning & Support Policy. This policy is at the heart of everything a SARC Member does – helping people live the lives they want to live. 

Additionally, SARC Members have contributed to or have worked in partnership with the Person-Centred Culture Committee. This dedicated group of representatives from Community Living Service Delivery (CLSD), Inclusion Saskatchewan, SARC, and several SARC Members developed the Person-centred Saskatchewan website to share resources and information to strengthen person-centred practice in the province.

SARC Members have Knowledgeable Staff Committed to Quality Services

SARC Members have an Agreement for Services with the Ministry of Social Services that outlines quality assurance and accountability measures and reporting. Included in this is the Saskatchewan Basic Standards Review, which assesses whether organizations are meeting standards in the areas of: rights of the people being supported, service provision, health and safety, staffing, financial management, and Board governance.

SARC Member Boards and staff are committed to quality services and recognize that ongoing professional development is key to maintaining a high standard of service. SARC, as the provincial association, is here to help, offering resources and training opportunities through SARC Learning Central , including the COMPASS Training Package , a collection of quality training programs available at no cost to SARC Members.

Employees in the Disability Service sector are trained and skilled in a variety of areas in order to deliver essential services to people experiencing intellectual disabilities, including personal care, healthcare supports, mobility assistance, behavioural support, and person-centred service delivery.

SARC Members Help People Achieve their Goals

SARC Members believe that every person has talent, skill, and potential. They also believe that each person is in charge of their own life, and  it all starts with the person-centred planning process where the person shares what’s important to them, what needs and goals they have, and how they like to spend their time. Then, the person and support staff work together to make those things happen. Check out some of the things people have been accomplishing with the support of SARC Member!

SARC Members Support People to Live to their Full Potential

The Disability Service sector’s ultimate goal is for people experiencing intellectual disabilities to live healthy, safe, and meaningful lives in their community.

We think our beliefs are the same as yours — that all are worthy of connectedness, companionship and community.

To achieve community inclusion, the Disability Service sector needs the support of government funding partners, dedicated employees, and our neighbours. Get to know us as part of your community!
