Do you live or work on the Westside of Vancouver? Are you interested in seniors’ issues? We invite you to consider volunteering for the Westside Seniors Hub Council.
We bring together local seniors and 17 senior-serving partner organizations to ensure that Westside neighbourhoods are places where seniors can thrive. As a “hub” for sharing information and promoting collective action, we provide leadership, identifying gaps in service delivery and generating community support for seniors’ issues.
Ideally, this is a 2-year commitment. The Hub Council meets monthly for 2 hours (on ZOOM at this time of pandemic) and arranges quarterly meetings with Partners for 1.5 hours to identify priorities and issues for collective action. Members also work on committees and attend meetings to network and keep current on relevant information. You can expect to devote about 10 hours per month to working on collaborative action.
While our interests are varied, they all respond to local needs. With our Partners we have, for example, changed the conversation around pedestrian visibility through Walk and Be Seen initiatives. We’ve partnered with UBC to open dialogue and create opportunities around living well with dementia, plus we are supporting our Partners in the use of technology to adapt seniors’ programming during the pandemic. Please consider joining us!

We’d be happy to extend you the opportunity to attend a Council and/or a Quarterly meeting as an observer.
