Vela is a BC resource that supports the creation of Microboards™
A microboard™ is a small group of committed family and friends (a minimum of 5 people) who join together with the individual to create a non-profit society, registered with the BC government.
Together, they will help the individual:
- plan his/her life;
- brainstorm ideas;
- advocate for what they need;
- monitor services and ensure they are safe;
- connect to his/her wider community; and
- do fun things together.
If they choose, a microboard™ can also access funding and deliver the services that the individual needs.
