Foundry is Expanding
Let’s Bring a FoundryBC site to Langley!
Langley Community Partners have put forward an application for a FoundryBC site here in Langley, to build on services that are offered throughout the community and at the Langley Youth Hub.
You can find further information on Foundry here: https://foundrybc.ca/expansion2020/
Langley has many strengths, our youth have a strong voice, community partners work to fill gaps in services when identified, and we continue to evolve as our community’s needs change.
Our community needs your support in the next stages of applications! Encompass Support Services Society is asking youth or families in Langley to support the application by filling out a Community Assets/Needs Survey found on this link: (closing Feb 12th)
Health Companion Mobile App Study
Are you interested in managing your health better using your smartphone?
Do you want to be provided with personalized recommendations on disease screening and healthy living?
If so, we would like you to participate in the development of the Health Companion mobile app. This mobile app will provide personalized, physician-endorsed recommendations for important health screening and prevention follow-ups based on your individual health background.
Over the next few months, we will be seeking adults between 40-65 years old, living around Surrey/Langley and fluent in English to participate in our project. Participants will take part in focus groups (2 hr) and/or product testing workshops (0.5-1hr).
Participation in these activities will be compensated at $20/hour.
