How CRNs can help you
A Community Response Network (CRN) is made up of a diverse group of concerned community members, community agencies, local businesses, government agencies, professionals and others who come together to create a coordinated community response to abuse, neglect and self-neglect in vulnerable adults.
When the community cannot provide appropriate support to the adult, the Adult Guardianship Act provides designated agencies (Health Authorities and Community Living BC) with the responsibility for investigating and ensuring that the proper action is undertaken.
CRNs 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.
Working together as a CRN, people and their communities are making a difference.
