In partnership with Grey County, Bruce County and several other community agencies, the Grey Bruce Health Unit has been working with County-owned rent-geared-to-income neighbourhoods to support healthy, inclusive, and safe neighbourhoods for families. Developing trusting partnerships within these neighbourhoods continues to be paramount in building community capacity and mobilizing community assets. Working together towards a shared vision builds a foundation for community engagement.
In 2018, the Spotlight on Grey Bruce: Community Building for Families resource was developed to highlight collaborative efforts and achievements as part of the community engagement process. The resource is intended for service providers interested in community engagement as a strategy that influences health and well-being, reduces health disparities and supports positive change.
In the summer of 2014, the Grey Bruce Health Unit, in partnership with the Tamarack Institute for Community Engagement, launched the Community Conversations Grey Bruce project. As part of a national campaign, the project aims to deepen community by facilitating conversations, generating themes and encouraging community action. Over the duration of the project (June 2014 - April 2015):
From the conversations, 6 themes were identified:
Tamarack - An Institute for Community Engagement
Grey Bruce Highlights from Community Conversations
Spotlight on Grey Bruce: Community Building for Families
