Community Inclusion Program (CIP)

Didlake’s Community Inclusion Program (CIP) is a licensed day support service that has received accreditation recognized internationally. The program is aimed at joining people with disabilities with their communities. Didlake’s vision is for communities to be enriched by the inclusion of people with disabilities in valued social roles.

The program helps participants reach their goals by:

  • Placing value on participants’ contributions
  • Setting high expectations, and
  • Supporting individual goals.


Didlake’s CIP offers the most support to participants of any of our programs. Staff continually assess participants. This allows them to determine strengths, needs, and preferences to create an Individual Service Plan (ISP).
