An online resource of health and social services on the Semiahmoo Peninsula has launched.
FETCH (For Everything That’s Community Health) was announced this week by Peace Arch Hospital and Community Health Foundation and the White Rock-South Surrey Division of Family Practice.
Part of the foundation’s Our Healthy Community project, it is a searchable website with links to resources – from mental health and substance abuse services to home-care support and wellness programs – that are available in South Surrey and White Rock for children, youth, adults and seniors.
The Our Healthy Community project was conceived in 2011 “to develop opportunities that would inspire people to learn about and participate in healthy activities and community events, essentially creating the healthiest community possible for its residents.”
A strategic plan was completed and finalized early this year.
The FETCH site is described as non-commercial and designed to be user-friendly. It may be accessed at sswr.fetchbc.ca
