Self and Family Managed Care Peer Network

Come and join the team!

The Independent Living Resource Centre understands the overwhelming feelings Managers have when starting off in the Self and Family Managed Care option. Indeed, because of this, the ILRC has created a Peer Support Group specifically for Managers as we want to support you wherever and whenever possible.

The Self and Family Managers Peer Group is a group made up of Managers who want to share and learn together. This gives Managers the opportunity to possibly find new staff, learn and understand employment standards/payroll and just all around support to each other. Within this group you will make new friends, learn new methods on how to manage your model, and create a long-lasting network that is always there to support you.

Meetings are chaired by a Manager on a rotation basis. That Manager works with Terry (IL Consultant) to set the agenda for meetings. Each Manager has the role and responsibility to inform Terry of which topics or issues they would like more information, and we'll see if we can set up speakers for you. Quarterly, the group meets with a representative from Winnipeg Regional Health Authority to discuss any questions Managers may have. Meetings are usually the second Monday of the month from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the ILRC office.

If you have any questions call Terry at 204-947-0194.
