  • With an increase in the number of persons with disability in India, the rehabilitation services are stretched in terms of infrastructure and human resources. Need for trained and professional human resource was always a challenge in the field of rehabilitation and finding support workers for high support needs person is almost an impossible task. Keeping the aforementioned in mind, SFT has designed a programme to bridge the gap between the community and persons’ with disabilities by providing value education on 'Disability Support Worker (DSW)' or 'Direct Support Practitioner (DSP)' course in the community. They are the key workers for the Independent Living Program and Long Term Care Giving Program. They provide the much needed support and relief to the families, parents, teachers, rehabilitators, employers and training organizations.
  • The process we propose to follow is Sensitization/Awareness/Workshop programme. Wherein the purpose is to sensitize the mass about disability and inclusivity, enrolment for DSW Introduction Course & Master Course. We conduct a sensitization/awareness/workshop programme in various organisation to understand the need of the audience better and also to raise about disability. We lay immense focus of hands on experience workshop/awareness programme with focus on social role valorisation.
  • TThe Disability Support Worker (DSW) Training Program, includes the conduction of DSW course which is a professional training programme for the people who are directly or indirectly associated with PwDs or person with special needs. A DSW is envisioned as a professionally trained individualwho facilitate the personswith disability in their everyday needs(such as bathing and grooming, housekeeping, feeding etc), mentor them in learning and performing their professional tasks (such as personal care, cleaning, laundry etc.), leisure activities and community roles. They implement the program and goals designed forthem at SFTorsister organizations and attheir homes.
  • The aim of the course is to achieve holistic development and provide the support practitioners opportunities to be become employable, empowered and independent human beingswho can provide fortheirfamilies and contribute to the society atlarge. The proposed training will create the trained work force not only forthe persons with disabilities primarily but will also be able to fillthe gap in the service providersfor geriatric population,schools, leisure centre and even hospitals
