Excellence in Education - Grey Bruce Children’s Alliance Profile

A staff presentation was given on a profile prepared by the Grey Bruce Children’s Alliance. The Alliance was formed in 2005 as a way for organizations to work together for the benefit of children, youth and their families. It is a partnership among 19 organizations that provide seamless and integrated services and support to children, youth andfamilies in Grey and Bruce Counties.

The Measuring and Planning for Child and Youth Health Project was a two year collaborative project. From this, a Profile of Child, Youth and Family Health in Grey and Bruce Counties has been prepared by the Grey Bruce Children’s Alliance. The Profile presents a summary of statistical information and research findings about children, youth and families in Grey Bruce and their health. It provides valuable information about the strengths and vulnerabilities of families in
Grey-Bruce. The Profile will be a baseline of information and will serve as a planning tool for the Children’s Alliance.

Priority areas for the Children’s Alliance identified through the Measuring and Planning Project include enhancing:
  • Supports for children, youth and families experiencing poverty;
  • The accessibility of services by expanding the available of service hubs;
  • Prevention services for school aged children (6-13 years) and their families;
  • The equity of, and local access to, specialized services for children and youth;
  • Supports for youth at risk of not prospering as young adults.
