Planned Lifetime Advocacy Network (PLAN)

Founded in 1989, Planned Lifetime Advocacy Network (PLAN) is a not-for-profit charity that was created by, and for, families who have a family member with a disability. The goal of PLAN is to offer peace of mind to these families by offering a safe and secure future for the family member with a disability, if necessary. For parents of a child with a disability, there remains a pressing concern over who will care for their child/children with a disability/disabilities if one or both of the parents dies.

The creation of a safety net of programs though PLAN makes it possible for the child/children with a disability/disabilities to tap into government-funded support services. PLAN provides lay advice and referrals on alternatives to government-administered social services, and pledges to monitor the quality of care that a relative receives for the rest of his/her life. PLAN advocates on behalf of individuals in their care and encourages law and policy reform to remove barriers that make it difficult for persons with disabilities to secure the care they require.
