February 7, 2023 at 12 PM (PST), Online

Registration is now open for our next free workshop. Sign up online or by emailing programs@bccrns.ca.

Everyone can play an important role in keeping others safe, secure, and independent.

This presentation is designed specifically for people who have regular contact with the public and with older, at-risk, and vulnerable adults as part of their daily routines and work activities.

In this session, learn more about:

  • What abuse and neglect look like.
  • How to connect at-risk individuals to the support they need to stay safe and healthy.
  • The ethical and legal implications of responding to adult abuse and neglect in BC.

This presentation is free of charge. Advance registration is required.

BC CRN offers free online workshops on the first Tuesday of the month, alternating with It’s Not Right! and See Something, Say Something.
