What Can You Do to Help? 

We know that there are lots more people in crisis who need developmental services and have not talked to the Ombudsman yet.

If you are a person labelled with a developmental disability and you are in crisis, call the Ombudsman and tell your story. It is very important that the Ombudsman hears these stories. Hearing people’s stories will help the Ombudsman to know whether the changes the Ministry is making are helping to make developmental services better.
