The purpose of CoreBC is to strengthen the community based social services sector through the development and distribution of practical research and learning facilitate and foster partnerships with key stakeholders, and promote and disseminate innovative practices and service delivery models. As such, we always have a wide array of initiatives and research projects on the go.
The promotion of high quality services and the generation and distribution of coordinated research and information are key to the work done in this sector. CoreBC brings these to the forefront and provides a portal to new knowledge and new ways of creating, distributing and discussing this knowledge. This, in turn, allows for more effective service delivery and increases the enormous benefit that our sector gives to society and to the economy.
