South Shuswap Community Response Network
As part of the BC Association of Community Response Networks, the South Shuswap Community Response Network membership includes community and government social agencies and organizaitonas as well as interested individuals. Sorrento Centre is the host agency for the SSCRN which meets once a month to help connect organizations, neighbours and others in the area, to facilitate networking and perhaps some collaborative projects.
A Community Response Network (CRN) brings people together to discuss the issue of adult abuse, neglect, and self-neglect to:
- Raise awareness and educate the public through workshops, presentations, and conferences.
- Work toward prevention.
- Build relationships leading to protocol development so everyone will know who can help.
- Assess how the community’s response is working to continuously make it better.
The South Shuswap Community Response Network brings together groups and individuals in the South Shuswap who have regular, ongoing contact with potentially vulnerable adults as part of their day. This includes agencies, businesses, social groups, faith communities, and interested individuals too.
The network also hosts prevention and education activities with local stakeholders to build a coordinated response to abuse, neglect and self-neglect of vulnerable adults.
