South Shuswap Community Response Network

As part of the BC Association of Community Response Networks, the South Shuswap Community Response Network continues to grow to include other interested member agencies and organizations. Sorrento Centre is the host agency for the South Shuswap Community Response Network 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:

Communities served by the South Shuswap Community Response Nework include: Sorrento, Blind Bay, Sunnybrae, Tappen, White Lake, Eagle Bay, Notch Hill, and surrounding area.
  • 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.

For many in the region, Sorrento Centre is known as a welcoming place to gather. One of our core values is to be an inclusive place for all and we work hard to be a good neighbour in the South Shuswap as well as the wider Shuswap region.
