Coordinated Service Planning
Contact Brant is working with other community organizations (education, health and children’s services) to offer Coordinated Service Planning to families in Brantford/Brant. Contact Brant is the lead Coordinating Agency in Brant. Having a clear place to call for support is important in our community, to make it easier for families to access services for their child, and to reduce families having to repeat their story. Call Contact Brant at 519-758-8228.
What is Coordinated Service Planning?
A Service Coordinator will be identified for each eligible family to lead coordinated planning of all your child’s services. The Service Coordinator will be the ‘key helper’ for your family. Working with education, health and children’s services, the Service Coordinator will develop an integrated Service Plan with you, driven by what is most important for your family. Your Service Coordinator will provide information, support and help you navigate the service system.
Contact Brant will want you to identify your preference for the agency that will provide your service coordination supports as there are a number agencies who have Service Coordinators to help you:
- Contact Brant
- Family Counselling Centre of Brant
- HNHB Local Health Integration Network (LHIN)
- Lansdowne Children’s Centre
- Six Nations of the Grand River Health Services
- Woodview Mental Health and Autism Services
Children and youth with multiple and/or complex needs who are under the age of 18, or between the ages of 18 and 21 and in school.
The Ministries of Children and Youth Services, Community and Social Services, Education, and Health and Long-Term Care are naming Coordinating Agencies in every community as part of the Special Needs Strategy. Contact Brant is the Lead Service Coordination Agency in Brant.
