The BC Association of Community Response Networks, whose slogan is “Stopping adult abuse and neglect … together,” works in communities through local organizations to bring awareness and learning around the many aspects of neglect and abuse of adults.
Recently, Wells Gray Country Seniors Society took the lead in forming a community response network (CRN).
Workshops are available to learn skills around awareness of issues relating to abuse and neglect and what to do if one suspects abuse or neglect.
Information pamphlets are available at the Seniors Room at Dutch Lake Community Centre and by going online to www.bcrns.com.
Other agencies that have signed on to join the community response network include Clearwater Rotary, Clearwater Elks and North Thompson Communities Foundation.
