In 2017, Halton Region and the Halton Regional Police Service introduced a Community Safety and Well-Being Plan. The Plan sets out how we work with community partners to improve the safety, health and well-being of Halton residents.
The community helped to shape the plan and focus on key issues. More than 500 people answered our survey or came out to public meetings held in Burlington, Halton Hills, Milton and Oakville.
Health and safety leaders from across the community came together to create the Plan:
This group and specific Action Tables (working groups) continue to work with the community to identify key issues and find the right solutions.
Community safety and well-being updates include information about our action tables, CSWB legislation, initiatives aligned to the Plan and other general information about community safety.
Our partners and experts are working together to address these key issues:
Making it easier for families, children and youth to access mental health services.
Finding a better way to support residents who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.
Making recommendations to improve how sexual assaults are investigated.
Exploring ways to connect more youth exiting the care of child welfare service to education, training and employment.
Finding ways to reduce unsafe alcohol use in Halton.
A mental health and addictions working group is looking at ways to improve how community partners plan and work together to best serve the community.
Improving how we identify and support older adults who are isolated or at risk of isolation.
The community can make their voice heard and bring forward issues by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 311.
