You would to established an ESPACE organization certified by the ROEQ?
Step 1: Communicate with the ROEQ
Consequently the coordinating team will be able to tell you if an organization already exists in your region or if they are presently implementing an organization.
The ROEQ supports and guides any new organization every step of the way and is also responsible to ensure the training of the team according to the certification process in effect at the ROEQ.
Step 2: The concertation
Assembling a group if adults that wants to implicate themselves to set up a resource dedicated to prevention.
Step 3: Rooted into the community
Get the support of the different actors in the community (other community organizations, Youth Center, CLSC ou CISSS, schools, daycares, etc.)
Step 4: Implementation
Find the necessary funding to ensure a minimum of permanent personnel. Start the incorporation procedures of a non-profit organization. Build the future team of facilitators and start the ESPACE training. Reach out to the general population so that your organization becomes known to them and raise awareness in the community about the issue of violence against children in order to get them involved and mobilised.
Because the ROEQ does not have sufficient funding, it cannot financially support the implementation of a new organization. The organization itself needs to obtain the necessary financial support through diverse resources within its region.
The main sources of funding can be: Ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux (programme de soutien aux organismes communautaires ), Centraide, Service Clubs, Foundations, Religious Orders, Fund-raising activities ans events, etc.
