Sunshine Coast Resource Centre
This is where the Sunshine Coast Resource Centre come in. The Centre is a fantastic place to go for information about local community services. They can direct you to the services you need, including legal advice, and local and regional programs.
While their physical office is closed because of COVID-19, they are still available by phone or email, during their regular business hours, to help you. Here’s how they can help. Here is up-to-date information on how to contact the Resource Centre.
If you need help when the Resource Centre is not open, you can also call BC 211. Just dial those three digits on your phone to reach them.
“211 provides free information and referral to a full range of community, social, and government services, and operates twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week.” They offer the same kind of service as the Resource Centre, helping you find the services you need, but at a provincial level.
