Canadian Think Tank recommends Call&Check as an ideal solution for Canada
A Canadian Think Tank on ageing - the National Institute on Ageing (NIA) - has published a policy White Paper entitled How Canadian Postal Workers Could Better Enable Ageing in the Right Place (27th January 2023). The team at Call&Check in Jersey are proud to be identified as the ideal service to be delivered and scaled across Canada.
Canada’s largest circulation newspaper - the ‘Toronto Star’ - will also be publishing an article on the report and Call&Check.
NIA reviewed three prominent international models of postal community care services from Jersey, France and Japan to form part of a case study. The document identifies benefits from each of the three models it went on to state the following about Jersey’s Call&Check:
- “The Call&Check program could therefore be an ideal model to serve as a starting point for designing a Canadian program due to the limited degree of infrastructure expansion required to support it and the similarities between Canada’s and Jersey’s postal service models”
The report also stated that:
- “... if the goal of the program is instead to supplement the provision of existing services in Canada by incorporating postal workers into service-delivery roles they are already well-equipped to provide, then a Call&Check program model could represent a more realistic option.”
And concluded that:
- “...Call&Check model’s relative simplicity could allow it to be more easily developed, spread and scaled across Canada. The models that have emerged in Japan and France demonstrate that additional services could also be integrated to allow for more robust service delivery and revenue options”
