The B.C. Government recently announced $3 million in funding for Connect for Care, a program to help seniors and people with disabilities remain independent and socially connected while still living at home. Building on the experience of lead partner Tyze Personal Networks, the program will deliver a targeted suite of online tools and personal support networks to help individuals, families and other caregivers.
“No one should have to face illness, caregiving or disability on their own,” says Vickie Cammack, Tyze CEO. “This funding will assist friends, family and neighbours across the province to connect, collaborate and care for one another.”
Tyze Personal Networks, a social enterprise that has been delivering online personal networks since 2008, launched The Belonging Fund in partnership with the Foundation in 2010.
