Since the beginning of the year, the city's social planning council has been helping to shape a new social plan for Kamloops. This hopefully will be a roadmap to action. The social planning council met on Tuesday for a discussion of the progress to this point. So, where are we currently?
We have a sense of the major gaps in social supports in Kamloops, derived largely from a series of public workshops held in the spring. We have an inventory of current services, as well as a directory of sources of various information.
The next steps include an upcoming series of workshops to discuss community action on various social issues and a search for more hard data to give a better picture of the situation.
If you would like more information, please do not hesitate to contact me.
