SPAN is a group of New Westminster seniors and community services providers who work to improve the lives of New Westminster seniors. Since 2005, this group has pursued projects based on research and members' awareness of seniors' needs and priorities.
SPAN welcomes seniors and service providers interested in volunteering to develop and implement projects. Meetings are held five times a year, with project groups meeting as needed.
Seniors Services Society acts as the host agency. They manage project funding from the United Way of the Lower Mainland for a project coordinator. Projects have been funded by a variety of sources, including New Horizons for Seniors and the Union of BC Municipalities.
Links to Project Reports and Meeting Minutes are below.
