Capacity-Building Grant Projects

In April 2015, with funding obtained through the Ministry of Health, CREA provided Capacity Building Grants for projects of up to $50,000. These Elder Abuse Capacity Building Projects continue to have impact for BC seniors.

The Capacity Building Grants were intended to assist provincial and community-based organizations to develop new or enhance existing elder abuse action projects in the areas of prevention, recognition or response projects and programs, to support seniors, their families and caregivers, front-line workers, etc.

The Capacity Building Grants were awarded for projects that involved strong partnerships, and to organizations with a good knowledge/understanding of elder abuse, excellent track records and a clear capacity to implement the project. The projects responded to an identified need, resulted in new approaches and resources to address elder abuse, and included a strong sustainability plan. They supported diversity, addressed issues faced by socially isolated or otherwise marginalized seniors, and strengthened networks.

These projects, and the approach to prevention, recognition and response, are as diverse as the populations targeted, and have educated police, bystanders, service providers, caregivers, older women fleeing abuse, seniors from various ethnocultural communities, Aboriginal Elders, people in the LGBTQ community, elderly renters and their landlords, families and communities about the mistreatment of older British Columbians. It is hoped that through sharing and collaboration, the results of these Elder Abuse Action project continue to have an impact on all British Columbians and will contribute to a change in societal attitudes so that elder abuse is no longer tolerated in this province.

These Capacity Building Projects will be shared during this conference....
