BC CRN’s Newest Online Offerings for It’s Not Right! and Gatekeeper
In times of COVID-19, vulnerable adults are more at risk of abuse, neglect and self-neglect as an unfortunate result of physical distancing, and self-quarantining. Awareness, education, and community are critical to keeping one another safe.
BC CRN is now offering free virtual outreach programming to the general public and essential workers.
The It’s Not Right! program is for everyday citizens, residents, neighbours, family members, and friends of adults and older adults.
Gatekeeper is the program for you if you are an essential worker who has regular contact with the general public and vulnerable adult populations as part of your daily work activities.
