LD Community Response Network – LDCRN


WHAT IS A CRN?

CRNs are collaborative informal networks that are the BC CRN’s local presence in communities. CRN’S are diverse groups of concerned community members / organizations who come together to create a coordinated community response to adult abuse, neglect and self-neglect.

The LDCRN was established on February 20th, 2014. We are individuals and agencies working together to enhance and coordinate the community’s ability to respond to the abuse, neglect and self-neglect of adults who are vulnerable.

LDCRN has been established to;

  • Make available information and resources
  • prevent abuse, neglect & self-neglect of adults who find themselves vulnerable
  • offer support & assistance to those who are experiencing abuse, neglect & self-neglect when they need it
  • promote safe communities, through the development of our network
  • facilitate activities, events & education that will raise awareness both public & professional awareness
  • work towards prevention through education                                    *CRN’s do not case manage

LDCRN has grown considerably since its inception and continues to grow.
