Supporting children with disabilities

Community Based Rehabilitation Jamaica (CBRJ) supports children with disabilities and their parents, preventing them from separating and assisting them in staying together as a family.

In Jamaica children with disabilities are often discriminated against, and for families that are already struggling to live under the poverty line, the pressure can often prove too much.

CBRJ’s main focus is to keep children with disabilities in family-based care. They provide a range of interventions including supporting parents to campaign for themselves, and for the rights of their children. CBRJ knows that the best place for a child to grow is with a loving family so also works with existing institutions to reintegrate children with families.
