About this Business:BC CRN is a resource network for responding to abuse, neglect, and self-neglect of vulnerable adults. 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 of 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. The South Shuswap Community Response Network brings together groups and individuals in the South Shuswap who have regular, ongoing contact with potentially vulnerable adults as part of their day. This includes agencies, businesses, social groups, faith communities, and interested individuals too. Communities served by the South Shuswap Community Response Network include: Sorrento, Blind Bay, Sunnybrae, Tappen, White Lake, Eagle Bay, Notch Hill, and surrounding area.
