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. Program logistics and support will be provided by CPABC.

Members of the volunteer planning board will receive an honorarium of 100 dollars per monthly event.
