Grandview Kids’ Family Advisory Council (FAC) is made up of parents or caregivers to Grandview Kids. These dedicated and passionate volunteers provide advice and guidance from a client and family perspective to improve the planning and delivery of programs and services at the Centre and across the broader paediatric health system.
The FAC meets quarterly to discuss systems-level topics – problems that all families may encounter, regardless of the child’s age or diagnosis. The group pulls from their lived experiences to provide recommendations to Grandview Kids, participating in the design and decision-making processes for programs and services at the Centre.
In some cases, FAC members share their stories and solutions on committees external to Grandview Kids, offering opportunities for broader impact. This diverse group of individuals helps Grandview Kids understand what matters most to the clients and caregivers it serves.
