Title: Community-based Service Intergration

Date: 2006

Author(s): Janet Bate

Description: On the Central West Coast of Vancouver Island, community leaders are engaged in collaborative partnerships with the intent of developing an integrated family service delivery model. Concurrently, the Provincial Government is promoting community-based collaborative partnerships and integration of services, while it also cuts funding to needed services in rural areas. First Nation governments are also in transition to establish authority and control over Aboriginal service planning and delivery. This community-based action research brings service providers, managers and funders together to determine the success factors in a rural service integration process through an Appreciative Inquiry process. This project explores what is necessary for the effective integration of family services in the Central West Coast Region of Vancouver Island. Study results show that shared visioning and learning opportunities through a sustainable community Coalition process are keys to a successful rural integrated service delivery process.
