Programming Connection

Positive Self-Management Program  

The Gilbert Centre for Social and Support Services

2018

Challenges

  • Transportation. It can be difficult for participants to make it to in-person sessions as programs can cover a large area and many participants do not drive. Carpooling and use of local taxi services can help to address transportation issues.
  • Recruiting program participants. The team at the Gilbert Centre has started to devise creative ways to find program participants. This has included building partnerships with diverse community groups and ensuring that people can speak passionately about the program and its goals when connecting with partners.
