The Royal City
Fraser Health, School District 40 and Kids New West partnered with SCOPE in 2014 to bring Live 5-2-1-0 to the city of New Westminster. A major focus for community partners has been to raise awareness of the Live 5-2-1-0 message among children and families in the region, while also taking local action to support healthy behaviours.
Sharing & Supporting Live 5-2-1-0
Here are just a few examples of how Live 5-2-1-0 is being shared and supported in New Westminster:
- Live 5-2-1-0 included in Kids New West Community Resource Guide and Summer Activity Guide
