Specialized Homes Redesign

Thank you for participating in this project.

For too long, contracted care has existed without the support of a formal system or provincial strategy – things like overarching policy, consistent procurement approaches and integrated reporting systems. The Ministry is proposing a new approach to providing contracted residential services in B.C., starting with defining a clear mandate that will help us build a strong system of supports that best meet the needs of children, youth and families.

The intention of this work is not to change good practice. Instead, the intention is to wrap a system around contracted services and knit these services together with the broader network of care to improve outcomes for the children, youth and families we serve. To do that, we need to improve how we support the sector to deliver this care, including reviewing how we contract, oversee and monitor services.

Engaging with Indigenous partners, service providers, contract holders, staff, families, interest groups and community members will help us shape the proposed model and ensure that, once implemented, it meets the unique needs of vulnerable children, youth and families in B.C.
