New Brunswick government has committed funding for disability support programs across the province of N.B.

The New Brunswick government has committed funding of $400,000 to go towards disability support programs across the province, including the roll out of an individualized support program for adults who have long-term disabilities.

New Brunswick Premier Shawn Graham made the announcement during New Brunswick's Disability Awareness Week. Graham said the program works to be tailored to adults who have either long-term physical, social or mental disabilities.

"It allows greater flexibility and it allows services to be provided to the individual rather than just a cookie-cutter approach where everything is applied under certain programs," he said.

Examples of care under the program include home support, respite care, transportation support or assistant devices not covered under other programs. Community participation of the individual is also encouraged under the program.

The support program for adults who have long-term disabilities New Brunswick wide roll-out is based on trials conducted in the Saint John, Fredericton and Bathurst areas and will happen July 1, 2010, six months ahead of schedule.
