Helping Victims Heal And Recover
McGuinty Government Improves Support Program
Victims of serious workplace incidents in Western Ontario will now have improved access to a support program that will help them through the healing process.
The province is providing additional funding to the Threads of Life Workplace Tragedy Family Support Association. Six new Family Guide volunteers will receive training to help them better support victims and their families.
Family Guides also collaborate with other organizations to promote services for victims of serious workplace incidents across Ontario.
- Threads of Life is receiving a $30,000 grant from the province's Victims' Justice Fund.
- It is the only association in the world providing one-on-one peer support through trained Volunteer Family Guides who have also experienced workplace tragedy.
“Threads of Life is helping ensure victims and their families are given the best chance at recovery. This additional support will enable more dedicated volunteers to reach out to even more people in their time of need.”
“We want to ensure that we provide the best resources possible to assist victims of serious workplace incidents through the healing process. Threads of Life is an excellent organization that helps us achieve this in London.”
“We are grateful to the McGuinty government for this funding. Support through the Volunteer Family Guide program provides information, hope and healing for the entire family.”
