Community planning for women’s economic well-being is now in its final phase and new feedback from local women is needed.
Every woman living on the Sunshine Coast is invited to fill out the 2014 survey.
“Whether you are a newcomer to the Coast or a long-term resident, we want to hear from you and we’re listening carefully,” said Michelle Morton, project manager for the Community Resource Centre’s Progress Plan.
Results from the first survey in 2012 were used to draft the “community plan … in Progress” (available at www.progressplan.ca). Women identified four key priority areas that required action including: income, transportation, care (for children and adults) and the overall importance of belonging.
During the action phase of the project, which began in May 2013, local groups have been working together to make improvements in the priority areas. Action groups are still underway and will be providing more information and updates later this fall.
The 2014 survey is now open and ready for women to provide feedback. How satisfied are you with your current economic well-being? What has changed for you, if anything, since 2012? What would make the most difference? Please reflect on your own personal situation and share your point of view.
Survey results will be used in the final community plan. The deadline to complete the survey is Oct. 15.
The survey can be completed online at www.progressplan.ca or if you would like a paper copy or need help to complete the survey, call 604-885-4088 or drop by the Community Resource Centre (Monday to Thursday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.) located at 5520 Trail Ave. in Sechelt.
