Within the context of the Coalition’s Strategic Plan, the Advocacy  Group:

  • Identify and assemble research that creates a picture of the characteristics and specific needs of children youth and their families in Simcoe County, including service statistics from Coalition members
  • Identify unique risk factors relevant to this area including mixed urban/rural composition, high commuter population, Francophone and First Nations/Métis/Inuit community needs, disparity in resources between southern and northern parts of the County
  • Develop an advocacy strategy for raising awareness of Simcoe County’s needs with funders and decision makers.
