Community Assessment & Strategic Priorities

Community Assessment

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 2019 using the Canadian Index of Wellbeing framework. A more specific assessment was completed in 2018 focusing on the wellbeing of youth and young adults in the rural townships of Waterloo Region. The WCHC community wellbeing assessments are conducted in partnership with other rural community agencies. This way, 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.
