Launch Your Own Seniors’ Centre Without Walls (SCWW) and Help Socially Isolated Seniors In Your Community Make Meaningful Connections


Why Create The SCWW Partnership Program

Many older adults in our communities are socially isolated and unable to access in-person or online programs. Some are reluctant to meet face-to-face for health reasons. Others can’t because of physical or mental health issues, financial constraints, transportation difficulties, or technological barriers.

Seniors’ Centre Without Walls (SCWW) eliminates these barriers by offering free, telephone-based group programs that make it safe and easy for seniors to participate in interesting activities, meet new people, and make meaningful connections – all from the comfort of home.


Joining The SCWW Partnership Program Gives You Exclusive Access To:

  • Free teleconferencing services: Get free training and access to teleconferencing services for 3 years.
  • Personalized onboarding and training: Receive customized onboarding and training sessions that address the unique needs of your community and give you the tools you need to run and sustain a successful SCWW.
  • On-demand resources: Get instant access to our extensive database of materials that includes customizable templates, training materials, and best practice guides in multiple languages.

  • Monthly program calendars: Every month, we publish a program calendar with four or more programs that we facilitate. These programs help our partners fill gaps in their calendars and assist with capacity issues.
