Family Advisory Network

The John McGivney Children's Centre is seeking present and past family members and clients to join our Family Advisory Network! 

Our vision:
Starting a network of Family Advisors at JMCC will help us ensure that what is important to families is at the centre of everything that we do. By working together with families as partners and listening and incorporating their voice across our organization, we will strive for greater child, youth and family satisfaction and engagement, as services that truly meet the needs of the children, youth and families we support. As an organization, we are committed to continuously becoming more family-centred and our network of family advisor volunteers will play an important role in this commitment. 

What is the role of a Family Advisor? 
Family Advisors will partner with Centre staff members and leaders to shape decisions and influence positive change. As part of our network of volunteers, Family Advisors share their experiences, tell their stories and use their knowledge and insight to advise on projects and decisions throughout the orginization. Family Advisors are individuals whose family member is receiving or has received services from JMCC or individuals who are receiving or have received services from JMCC themselves. Family Advisors work with Centre staff and decision makers to ensure the voice of the child, youth and families is brought into the decision making process by sharing their experiences and insights.

JMCC is committed to having a volunteer population that is representatives of the children, youth and families we serve.
