Health and Wellbeing Service Feasibility Report and Alternative Approval Process
In 2022, Urban Matters completed a feasibility study on establishing a health and well-being service on Gabriola Island. This study compared similar services and held stakeholder meetings with organizations that coordinate health and well-being-related services. The study results are summarized in the report: Feasibility Report: Community Health and Wellbeing Service – Gabriola Island.
The report recommends starting with Part-time Administration and Coordination services, as a pilot intending to grow the service over time towards Full-time Administration. By starting with Part-time Administration and Coordination the community will be able to measure the impact of the service over time and expand towards a Full-time Administration if desired. Starting with Part-time Administration and Coordination also carries the lowest risk for the contracted service organization and the Regional District. Further details about this study and recommendations can be found in the Staff Report and the Feasibility Report: Community Health and Wellbeing Service – Gabriola Island.
Pending approval by the RDN Board, an Alternative Approval Process (AAP) will be held in early 2024. To learn more about the proposed Health and Wellbeing Service for Gabriola Island and the Alternative Approval Process (AAP) join us at one of the following opportunities:
