Resource Lending Library

The Lending Library is a work in progress. If you have a recent publication or video that you think would benefit our clients and/or their families, please consider donating it to SOCLA. If you are not ready to part with it but think that it is wonderful, drop us a line with a recommendation. Library materials will be listed on this website over the coming months.


The Queen Alexandra Foundation

  The Queen Alexandra Foundation for Children has a rich history of helping children. We raise and invest funds to provide programs and activities that help children, youth and their families. Over 20,000 children are assisted annually on Vancouver Island through program and equipment grants.

Recreation Integration Victoria 

RIV provides services that facilitate inclusive recreation and leisure opportunities for people with disabilities.

Community Options for Children and Families

  Community Options is a group of parents and professionals that offers supportive programs to people with disabilities and their families. Our mission is to provide quality support services to people with disabilities and their families, within the community, and we are committed to maintaining the services we provide.

Family Support Institute

  The Family Support Institute is a province-wide organization whose purpose is to support and strengthen families faced with the extraordinary circumstances that come with having a family member who has a disability.


Our 75 member associations include tens of thousands of individuals, family members, support workers and volunteers. When needed, we put our province-wide network and resources to work to help make sure individuals' rights are respected, their voices heard, and their needs met.
