Our role is to identify what is happening in the community, and the current social needs and gaps in services. We work with local and regional organizations as well as residents to build partnerships and create a greater sense of belonging for our community.
Social Development initiatives include Interagency Brown Bag Sessions, the Social Needs Assessment Project, and the Good Neighbour Initiative.
Interagency Brown Bag Sessions
Leduc Interagency Brown Bag Sessions are an informal gathering of representatives from agencies, organizations, and interested individuals who provide programs or service to individuals and families. Participants meet over lunch to share information about services and social programs in Leduc and surrounding areas. Interagency also provides the opportunity to develop partnerships in order to avoid duplication of services.
Sessions are held at the Leduc Civic Centre in the Lede Room from 11:45 a.m. - 12:45 p.m. (bring your lunch).
Social Needs Assessment Project
We’ve witnessed many successes in our community since the social needs assessment identified priority areas for positive change. We continue to grow as a community through a proactive approach, collaboration and enhanced awareness of our social needs.
A Social Needs Assessment is an ongoing analysis of the social care needs of a community:
- Needs - Gathering information about social issues and trends
- Assets - Gathering information about resources available
- Priorities - Determining what issues are most important
- Partnerships - Building commitment and support from the community to improve the social health of the community
Over the years, information collected from these social needs assessments have acted as a planning tool for Family and Community Support Services and the City of Leduc.
