CAUSES

Children & Youth

Disadvantaged young persons struggle with challenges on multiple fronts, and therefore find it hard to access the support needed to do well in life. Colabs sets out to understand what can be done to enable them to attain greater social mobility through education and employment

Persons with Disabilities

While help is available during their growing years, persons with disabilities have limited developmental opportunities as they enter into adulthood and old age. Colabs sets out to understand how persons with disabilities can be supported to live life as independent individuals.

Seniors

Despite a growing range of options, vulnerable seniors may not be able to access services that fulfill their care needs or lifestyle preferences. Colabs sets out to understand how vulnerable seniors can make choices that support their physical, psychological and social well-being.

There’s a lot that we can do together

This first Colabs publication sheds light on the challenges that disadvantaged young persons face at home, and the impact of the family environment on educational attainment and social mobility. It then shares suggestions for collaborative action that givers can take to close the gap for these individuals, based on the collective insights of over 100 participants who contributed during the series.
