Community Assessment & Strategic Priorities
Woolwich Community Health Centre conducts a Community Wellbeing Assessment every 4 to 5 years to learn more about the needs and strengths in the community we serve. The most recent assessment was completed in 2014 and used the Canadian Index of Wellbeing as a framework. A more specific assessment was completed in 2018 and focused on the wellbeing of youth and young adults living in the rural townships of Waterloo Region. The WCHC community wellbeing assessments were conducted in partnership with other rural community agencies so that we can all use the results to further our work in the townships. You can read the assessments located in the links and resources section.
