Description (Service) Facile Perth assists people with disabilities and their families in Perth and Huron Counties to plan for and build a good life in community. That means a life rich in people and places.

Planning and facilitation is the core of our work. Through planning and facilitation, we support people and their families to create the life they want in the community. Our planning and facilitation is not one-size-fits-all. Instead of a menu of services, we get to know each individual and family that we work with, understand their unique gifts, strengths, dreams, and challenges. We then work with you to develop a plan for the life you want to live, and work with you to facilitate that plan.

Person-Directed Planning:

Planning is something we all do. We think about what is important to us in our lives. We talk to others we trust. We decide what is needed to have the life we want. Person-directed planning is just that - a person has the opportunity to think about and decide what is important to them. Most often, this includes a person's family and others who are important in their lives. Our role at Facile is to guide the process of planning, but not direct it. Independent facilitators who guide the process believe:

People make decisions about their own lives. Family and friends of the person are important and are listened to. A person's community is the first place to look for anything they need to build a good life. Everybody has dreams, strengths and gifts. People need people. Planning includes action.

Independent Facilitation:

Facile offers independent facilitation to support person-directed planning, relationship development, social inclusion and community participation and contribution. The role of independent facilitators is to guide the process, but not direct it. As independent facilitators, we are accountable to the person and their network. We are an independent and unencumbered organization, separate from agencies that provide direct services or decides who is eligible for funding or services.
