Well-Being and Safety
Cariboo Chilcotin Acute Response Table (CCART)
The Cariboo Chilcotin Acute Response Table (CCART) is a risk driven response model that works in collaboration with other human service providers to identify risks before incidents occur. This model is also referred to a “Hub”. It originated out Prince Albert, Saskatchewan and has been successfully established in 100+ communities in Canada. This model is instrumental in reducing child protection cases, violent crimes, and emergency room admission. British Columbia to date has 10 Situation Tables established of which the Williams Lake Table is one.
Community Well-Being and Safety Plan
The Community Well-being and Safety Plan for the Cariboo Chilcotin - ‘A Framework for Collaboration and Action’ is an update to the Integrated Community Safety Initiative. This framework provides a model for strengthening collaboration in order to collectively address well-being, crime, and community safety in the Cariboo Chilcotin. The paradigm shift in human services, away from siloed, reactionary measures and towards upstream, multi-sector collaborative initiatives is beginning to be recognized as Community Well-being and Safety Plans are being initiated across Canada. It is exciting to know that we are among the first 10 Cities in British Columbia working towards strategically implementing our plan.
