North Hastings municipalities are teaming up to create safer communities and to better address issues such as health and well-being, isolation and crime reduction. They’re now looking for people to join the fight.
The North Hastings Community Safety and Well-Being Committee is putting out a call for experts to join its advisory committee. The invitation is out to local health care and social services workers and to representatives of First Nations communities. Police and education workers are welcome, too.
The Well-Being Committee works on behalf of seven municipal governments in the area. It hopes to address three priority areas: poverty, mental health and addictions and housing.
A virtual meeting is scheduled for Thursday, Nov. 24 for those who want to learn more.
