Seniors Program

 

“Tea, Talk and Crumpets” is a new social and recreational outlet for seniors with disabilities, facilitated and organized by community members, and hosted by the Cerebral Palsy Association of BC.

This is a peer-run program. A volunteer planning board will choose program activities and facilitate the group.

We are currently recruiting six volunteers for the planning board. This volunteer role includes:

  • overall program planning and development
  • planning activities (outings, socials, discussion topics, etc.)
  • scheduling meetings
  • contacting and booking guest speakers
  • outreach and promotion of the group
  • helping to recruit program participants

Program logistics and support will be provided by CPABC.

Volunteers will receive a monthly honourarium of $100.

Please contact Dan Chalcraft, Community Engagement Assistant @ community@bccerebralpalsy.com or 604 408 9484 for more information.

The first session will be on June 5th from 3 to 4 p.m. at the Yaletown Roundhouse Community Centre. This is a free program and refreshments will be provided. The topic will be announced soon. Check back for new developments.  We will have the event at the Roundhouse Community Arts & Recreation Centre in Yaletown http://roundhouse.ca/

This is an age-inclusive program for anyone with a disability. “Senior” is defined as anyone over 50.

The group is for seniors with disabilities but is also open to able bodied seniors as well.
