The City of Nanaimo worked with community partners to create the Nanaimo Acute Response Table (NART), previously known as the Situation Table. The table is a multi-agency team focused on addressing specific situations where the probability of a vulnerable person or family experiencing harm is imminent, significant and cuts across multiple human service sectors.
Members of the Table meet regularly to review situations of acutely elevated risk to determine if an individual or family meets the criteria for imminent risk for harm and/or victimization. Through consensus, the Table members coordinate interventions as necessary; the Table does not perform case management. The purpose of the Table is to address acutely elevated risk within 24-48 hours and connect individuals and families to services. Case management remains with the most appropriate agency as determined by the members of the table. The following organizations participate in the Nanaimo Acute Response Table:
Nanaimo's Acute Response Table launched on January 31, 2023. The table meets every second Tuesday at 2pm.
