A Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from all of us at Langley Pos-Abilities



Be a Valued Part of our Celebration of Abilities
Great volunteer opportunities waiting for Your Flair and Enthusiasm!

Through our work with the TOAD program and various organizations in the community we have partnered with the Emergency Services in Langley and are publicizing their emergency evacuation check list.



LPAS Volunteers are required to

  • join the Langley Pos-Abilities Society so they are covered by our insurance ($10.00 per year )
  • enjoy our orientation program
  • undergo a free, on-line criminal records check

Accessibility Think Tank
 
Langley Pos-Abilities is planning on designing an Accessibility Audit. The following statement comes from our TOAD (Try on a Disability) brochure.
“How “Persons with a Disability”-friendly is your business or workplace? Let Langley Pos-Abilities assess your accessibility. After examining your workplace, you will receive a detailed report, and if needed, we will offer ideas to improve your score. There are many low-cost or no-cost ways you can make your workplace a welcoming environment for people with disabilities. At no additional cost to you, we will revisit your workplace to re-evaluate your accessibility once adjustments have been made. Upon satisfactory completion of the examination, a certificate suitable for framing will be awarded.”
We are looking at this from the point of view of practicality and not the point of view of building code.
Therefore, we need your help. From your experience and knowledge about your challenges, we would like your input in helping to design the questions that we would pose on this audit. We are specifically looking for people with differing abilities, so we can look at as many sides of the question as possible. So, if you know someone who can help, please forward this invitation to them.
The Township of Langley is partnering with us to further this project. You are invited to attend on Saturday January 12, 2019 from 10 AM to 3 PM at ABC Rooms of the George Preston Centre 20699 42 Ave, Langley, BC V3A 3B1 . Lunch will be provided.
Please RSVP so we can ensure that we have enough room and food for all attendees. If you need further info please contact Zosia at 604 961-0117.
