Welcome to the Halton Social Capital Committee
What is Social Capital?
The term "Social Capital" generally refers to the valuable resources that come from forming relationships. While this may seem unclear, the benefits are truly endless. Just think, with the right friends, peers, and networks, accessing resources like property, employment, and opportunities becomes simple. Social capital is the form of capital that creates public goods for a common good.
How to Get Involved.
You can get involved by becoming an advocate for social capital in your community. Be an Advocate! Advocacy is simply providing public support for a common goal. Join us in removing barriers for people with disabilities and together we will move towards a truly inclusive community. Check out our Facebook page, Instagram, and Twitter for events and happenings within your community.
The Halton Social Capital Committee believes that individuals with developmental disabilities should experience a sense of belonging everywhere they go. Welcome Spaces are spaces and places that have made a formal commitment to inclusion practices and recognize the importance of social capital.
