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.

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
