My Health, My Community - series of dialogues hosted by the SCCF

My Health, My Community – series of dialogues hosted by the SCCF

 

 

More to come….

 

 

The “My Health, My Community” series of community dialogues looked at the responses to the Vancouver Coastal Health survey that was circulated the first half of the year and engaged the public in determining what the key issues are and providing some suggestions for the action plans.

A wrap-up meeting will be held on Thursday October 16th at 7:00pm – 9:00pm at the Sunshine Coast Golf & Country Club to present the findings for the entire Coast.

Plan h, a collaboration of BC Health Communities and Ministry of Health, has selected our community to hold a Sustainability & Planning workshop for the local governments and appropriate stakeholder organizations in late October/early November. This will position them well for developing an Action Plan – and just in time for municipal elections!

Isn’t it great to know the few minutes you spent answering a survey might just amount to something concrete?

Another wonderful granting season!

We have just completed another very successful grant season! You can check out the pictures of the recipients here.  All photos courtesy of the Coast Reporter – many thanks to Associate Publisher Cathie Roy!

My Health, My Community – save the date(s)!

We will be holding a series of community dialogues this Fall to report the results of this Vancouver Coastal Health survey and to formulate recommendations to take to the powers that be.

We will report back to each community the findings from the survey for that area.

September 11th – Sechelt – Royal Canadian Legion – 7:00pm – 9:00pm
September 17th – Pender Harbour – Royal Canadian Legion – 7:00pm – 9:00pm
September 18th – Gibsons – Royal Canadian Legion – 7:00pm – 9:00pm

The format will be a brief presentation by VCH sharing the results of the survey and the constraints they face, as well as a report from the Division of Family Practice (local doctors), and then we will break into round table discussions to determine what is missing and to recommend action items for local governments.

On  October 16th (SC Golf & Country Club – Roberts Creek -7:00pm – 9:00pm), we will report back on a summary of the combined findings for the entire Coast and then provide the local governments with the results.

District of Sechelt will hold an elected officials meeting in late Fall to develop Action Plans.
