The Quality of Life (QoL)

The Quality of Life Programme (QoL) is a new and innovative project has been undertaken by Manovikas Charitable Society.  It aims to provide a safe, stimulating and creative day centre for young people and adults in the community with severe and multiple disabilities that are unlikely to benefit from further educational intervention or training programmes. 

The focus of the activities provided will be on recreation, creativity and community presence within a caring and nurturing environment suitably equipped for those with severe disabilities overseen and supported by parents, carers, and staffed by health and rehabilitation professionals who can ensure the best possible practice, support staff, other volunteers and the community.  

This is to be a user lead, client centred project with participants encouraged to make choices and decisions based on their personal preferences.  For, and from the community in which it is based this project is potentially unique within India.
