District of Sechelt & Sunshine Coast Seniors Planning Table collaborating on Age Friendly Community Plan
The District of Sechelt and the Sunshine Coast Seniors Planning Table are collaborating on an Age Friendly Community Plan for Sechelt.
Alison Leaney, a coordinator with the Sunshine Coast Seniors’ Planning Table, says they’ve received a $20,000 grant from the province to develop the plan.
Leaney says they’ll build the plan around the World Health Organization’s definition of an age-friendly community.
She says they’ll be hosting a series of focus groups beginning in April to gather public input, and they hope aspects of Sechelt’s plan can be adopted by other communities on the Sunshine Coast.
