The Edmonton Seniors Coordinating Council was established in 2004 when there was a need for shared planning, coordination and collaboration among service providers for seniors. Being a communication hub for the senior sector, the ESCC helps organizations to improve programs and recreational services for older people.
Through the work of ESCC, organizations that provide social support to seniors have enhanced capacity and work collaboratively to provide effective, accessible services to meet diverse needs of seniors in Edmonton.
The Coordinating Council endorses the following values:
- Collaboration among senior-serving organizations for the delivery and evaluation of social and recreational programs or activities
- Sharing of resources (financial, staff, volunteer, equipment, policies) among senior-serving organizations
- Respecting the autonomy and integrity of its membership
