"The Family Support Institute is a province-wide organization whose purpose is to strengthen and support families faced with the extraordinary circumstances that come with having a family member who has a disability. We believe that families are the best resource available to support one another. Directed by families, the Family Support Institute provides information, training and province-wide networking to assist families and their communities to build upon and share their strengths."

"Support Worker Central is a matching database connecting individuals/families and agencies to support workers across BC. It is important that individuals and families take all reasonable steps that an employer would normally undertake before hiring a support worker including obtaining verification of a clear criminal record check and vulnerable sector search, conducting a thorough interview, and checking references."
