Lionsview Seniors Planning Society hosts the Seniors Planning Table (SPT) for the North Shore.
SPT’s are an initiative from the United Way and support the capacity of the community to collaborate, plan and mobilize to improve the lives of older adults.
The SPT on the North Shore is comprised of a cross section of community members and includes service providers, staff from all levels of government, elected political representatives, and members of the general public- essentially anyone who wants to work toward positive social change and to make a difference in the lives of seniors.
SPT’s form strategic partnerships to leverage finds, support research to inform their actions, develop and implement strategic action plans, provide funding recommendations when appropriate, engage in monitoring and evaluation activities, meet to discuss timely issues and share volunteer training.
There are currently SPT’S in operation in Burnaby, New Westminister, Surrey, the Semiahmoo Peninsula, Delta , Maple Ridge/Pitt Meadows/Katzie, Langley, Richmond and the West End of Vancouver.
