Creating Community Wellness Society, The Wellness Charity, leads in the development and coordination of community-based health and wellness initiatives and supports the charitable work of community organizations that provide wellness education, and wellness, health and medical care services to the public.
We support programs and services that enhance wellness education and promote health through all stages of life. With a focus on improving wellbeing, programs aim to support individual self-management of their own health, community-based health, the integrative approach to wellness and health care, and outreach to vulnerable individuals and groups.
As a small, volunteer-run organization, we frequently partner with the Victoria Community Health Co-operative and other community organizations that provide wellness education, and wellness, health and medical care services to the public. Learn more about our work with the Co-op here.
