The RCD's Services & Activities

The Richmond Centre for Disability (RCD) is a consumer centered organization committed to enabling all people with disabilities in making informed choices, creating opportunities, meeting their goals and reaching their full potential. We offer an empowering, friendly environment where we work to provide quality services that lead to inclusion for people with disabilities and greater public awareness.

The RCD responds to the needs of members and communities, thus designs and provides services and activities involving skills development, literacy, health, recreation, technology, peer support and disabilities support services. We take a cross and multi-disability, self-directed and inclusive approach.

To remain a vibrant and modern agency, we have always understood that its enduring strength lies in its ability to be flexible and to constantly seek ways to improve how we provide resources, services and programming for our participants. The goal is to adapt to the new challenges of today – and tomorrow.
