  • Peer Support Training: Learn how to be a supportive friend or neighbour and help peers navigate their challenges.
  • Wellbeing Network Meetings: Engage in discussions about initiatives and activities designed to boost social engagement, build community, and reduce the isolation often faced by older adults.
