Electronic resource inventory on-line

A electronic library of Sooke resources offered by Sooke Region Volunteer Centre

Whether you’re publicizing a local event, seeking a service, or wondering what’s happening in our area, the Sooke Region Resource Inventory (RI) can help. This electronic resource launched in 2010 by the Sooke Region Community Health Initiative (CHI) in partnership, and funded by the District of Sooke and Island Health, and may be viewed at www.sookeregionresources.com

“When we began this project, we had no idea that there were so many non-profit organizations in the area,” says RI coordinator Marlene Barry.  “Our claim to be a Volunteer Capital of Canada is well-founded: there are more than 180 local non-profit groups, clubs and charities; and over 75 of them are already included in the RI.  This calendar is the only local on-line source in ‘calendar format’ for a clear overview of the region’s events. With the new upgrade, we’ll be able to start using social media to share local information.”

Besides the new social media section, newsletter, blog and media capabilities, the new RI retains the volunteer opportunities directory, directory of local resources, information on local recycling, links page, and information on using the site. The Sooke Region Resources site is designed to be a comprehensive inventory of programs, services and information for the communities from Beecher Bay to Port Renfrew.  The site connects community members, both new and longstanding, with the information they need, whether it be recreation and leisure, employment and education, or health care and social services. Organizations that advance the social determinants of health are invited to participate, this includes clubs, PAC’s and more.  Listings are free, and each organization maintains its own listing.  The site is now managed by the Sooke Region Volunteer Centre, another project of CHI.
