Over the past year, West Neighbourhood House has been working with a social innovation team called InWithForward. We brought the team in initially to work with staff and members at The Meeting Place Drop-in to explore alternatives after an unusual spike in premature deaths of members. You can read more about that pilot project in the Adult Programs section of our Annual Report. Now we are engaged in discussions with them about how to continue this participatory program design work. You can read more about their ideas in InWithForward’s Grounded Change report.
If you are interested in learning more about Grounded Change, InWithForward is offering some unique seminars this month that you may want to take part in.
