Community Asset Listings Available

Oct 30, 2018

Western Health has completed Community Asset Listing reports for seven Primary Health Care (PHC) areas within the region. Community assets provide an overview of the major assets available within a PHC area focusing on health and community resources that support individuals and communities in maintaining a safe and healthy environment.

“The Community Asset Listings provide insight into the resources that communities have available to support health and wellness,” said Darla King, Regional Director of Community Health.  “Understanding a community’s strengths makes it easier to understand what kinds of programs or initiatives can be implemented to address the community’s needs.”

Western Health would like to acknowledge the continued contribution of Community Advisory Committees (CACs), which worked in partnership with Primary Health Care teams in the development of Community Asset Listings throughout the region. The CACs are made up from community members who have an interest in health and provide input into health initiatives in their communities. Western Health staff and CACs will work collaboratively to use the Community Asset Listings as a foundation for community improvement.

The Community Asset Listings are a portion of the Community Health Needs and Resources Assessment process that Western Health began in 2016. To date, surveys were completed in 2016, as well as seven regional focus groups completed in 2017.
