DIRECTIONS Council for Vocational Services Society is a not for profit organization representing twenty-eight member agencies throughout Nova Scotia. The Council's mandate is to assist and support member organizations in the delivery of services that promote the abilities and inclusion of persons with disabilities in the every day activities of their community. DIRECTIONS member agencies provide program services for 1800 participants within the province including educational opportunities, provincial staff benefits, networking, advocacy, leadership and a variety of vocational resources.


"DIRECTIONS is pleased to be an Alliance member and as Executive Director of DASC I join them in realizing the importance of this work. We have a responsibility to research who is needing service, what service they require, and what manner in which they would like it provided so that we as advocates, educators, service providers and policy makers can shape a future that is responsive to those needs."
