Common Threads Conference: Changing Stories...Stories Of Change

COMMON THREADS 2016
Changing Stories…Stories of Change

For more than 20 years, family groups in Ontario have created and benefited from a variety of effective approaches to Independent Facilitation.

In 2016, OIFN hosted the second Common Threads Conference, supported by MCSS funding for the Independent Facilitation Demonstration Project.

This conference drew people with disabilities, family members, independent facilitators, and organization leaders together to reflect on stories of change supported by independent facilitators.

This compound question framed their thinking together: “What difference does Independent Facilitation make and how is it done?” Most of the exploration focused on change for people and families as they relate to their communities and supports.
