March is Community Social Services Awareness Month!

March is Community Social Services Awareness Month!

BURNABY—Community Social Services Awareness month is a province-wide effort to raise awareness about the vital role that community social services play in our communities – by taking the message out to communities across British Columbia.

Each year throughout the month of March, CUPE and other unions representing community social services workers shine a spotlight (http://www.cssmatters.ca/) on the important role that community social services play in our lives and in our society as a whole. They make our communities stronger, healthier, and more stable.

The month concludes with a Community Social Services Walk in Victoria. For more information about the walk, check out the walk invitation or the poster. If you’re interested in attending the walk or organizing a group to attend, please take a sign-up sheet and submit it to ccolborne@cupe.ca.

To send a message to Premier Christy Clark calling for the government to increase funding of the sector, you can download a post card on community living issues, youth services or childcare. For more information about CSS Awareness month, check out the campaign brochure.
