Program Description

“Community Response Networks around the province are reaching out to their communities to join the network and work to raise the awareness of abuse, neglect, and self-neglect in vulnerable adults, and to ultimately prevent it from happening.”

“Community Response Networks is a provincial umbrella organization that supports local community response networks who in turn work to create a strong community response for adults who may be experiencing or be impacted by abuse, neglect and self-neglect.”

Community Response Networks are made up of community members, agencies, businesses, government agencies, professionals, and others.

The BC Association of Community Response Networks provides elder abuse prevention funding, resources, materials, training, and support to Community Response Networks.

  • The role we play in the community, and what we can do to address abuse and neglect.

  • Understanding how and when to refer an older adult for help.
