New Westminster Overdose Community Action Team (NWOCAT)
The New Westminster Overdose Community Action Team (NWOCAT) was established in 2018, with the intention of bringing together diverse community partners at one table to identify and bridge gaps in services and interventions designed to prevent overdose deaths, enhance quality of care and combat stigma. There are four programs that operate under the NWOCAT’s umbrella at Purpose:
- The Peer Network
- Project ALLIES
- The Anti-Stigma Campaign
- Digital Inclusion.
