WHO WE SUPPORT

Our clients are all adults living independently within the Municipality of Saanich. 

 

When the Municipality reviewed seniors' needs it found that accessing services and effective transportation options were real challenges.

 

Without the free, direct volunteer services we offer, more Saanich seniors would be isolated and lonely, or placed in a position of choosing to drive when they shouldn’t be driving.

In providing these services, Saanich Volunteer Services contributes directly to the health and well-being of our home community.
