The Living Link
The Living Link is a non-profit organisation that caters for the disabled community regardless of race, gender and religious background. The center aims to encourage, enhance and support the development of intellectually disabled adults, and help them attain a high quality of life.
The organisation was started in 2000 by Julia and Ingrid, sister and mother to Nadine, who has an intellectual disability. Through dedication and perseverance they taught Nadine essential living skills, which have contributed to her independence and her intellectual and spiritual growth. They were inspired to share their knowledge, and allow other such adults to become more valuable members of society.
Students at The Living Link complete either the 1 year Adult Integration Program or 8 month Work Readiness Programme – aimed at integrating them into society, both in the work place and in the community. The programmes are life skills and work experience based, and focus on the following areas –Employment Orientation, Personal Empowerment, Lifestyle Management and Community Survival, Budgeting and basic Finance. Job Sampling placements during the training year allow the students the opportunity to experience different types of jobs and the realities of work.
The Living Link seeks to place graduates into open labour market employment by implementing the Supported Employment model. Adults with disabilities are placed in ordinary working environments, doing regular work where salaries and benefits are real and reflect work performance. The Living Link provides placement support and ongoing Job Coaching and training to both employer and employee.
The Living Link is also exploring appointments for the graduates who have completed the Adult Integration Program and Work Readiness Programme to be meaningfully occupied while we find them permanent employment.
The types of tasks suitable would be entry level, repetitive simple jobs.
Based on the idea of full inclusion, The Living Link encourages and facilitates the transition of their members into employment and independent living. Adults with disabilities who have employment are supported in making the move away from their parents and into the community. With structured interventions these adults manage their own lives and households.
The Living Link strives to facilitate growth and change by empowering their members, support networks and the community and by creating an environment of understanding, acceptance and possibility.The Living Link is a non-profit organisation that caters for the disabled community regardless of race, gender and religious background.
