SafeGames 2010, a consortium of organisations and businesses led by the SafeGames Project and the Vancouver based Keeping The Door Open Society, are working together to insure that those attending the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics celebrate safely while in town.
We are fortunate to have an expanding partnership of associated organisations with complementary skills in research, policy, education, response, and the provision of services to address a wide array of complex and overlapping health and behavioural issues.
Our Partners have contributed to fulfilling the mission of SafeGames 2010 in several ways, including: providing content for our materials, providing training and planning for our outreach teams, and providing strategic advice about how to enhance SafeGames’ overall effort.
