Waterloo Region Special Needs Surveys

Waterloo Region Special Needs Surveys

Waterloo Region Special Needs Strategy Planning Table has a vision for a Waterloo Region where all children and youth with special needs get the timely and effective services they need to participate fully at home, at school, in the community and as they prepare to achieve their goals.

To help them achieve this vision, they are asking families, caregivers, youth and service providers to share their experience by taking a few minutes to complete the following surveys.

Survey #1: Values
What’s important to you? As a caregiver, as a family, you know what services and resources your child has benefited from. You know what has worked and what hasn’t worked and what can be done to make special needs services in Waterloo Region better. Please let us know what values we should be mindful of.
Deadline: Monday, April 27th

Survey #2 (I’m a Parent/Caregiver/YouthI’m a Service Provider): Feedback on a New Model
The Waterloo Region Special Needs Strategy Planning Table has a first draft of a new Coordinated Service Plan Model. As a family of children with special needs, an individual or staff member, your insight is crucial. Please tell us what you think about the model.
Deadline: Thursday, April 16th at 5pm

The Wellesley Community Food Cupboard opens in less than a month, thanks to the collaboration of local foodbanks, a committee of people from local churches, businesses and organizations, and Carizon’s own Sue Martin, Family Outreach Worker. This food cupboard will be an emergency stopgap for people who need groceries, but can’t get to the bigger food banks in Elmira or New Hamburg. The cupboard’s hours will be every Monday from 10 a.m. to noon and every Thursday from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. People who need support are able to call the Wellesley Community Food Cupboard directly at 519-616-3663 (Food). Learn more about this venture by reading the article featured in the New Hamburg Independent.
