Service Coordination

WHAT IS SERVICE COORDINATION?

When a child has complex needs, it is challenging for families/legal guardians to know who to turn to for help. Service Coordinators at CCN assist families who require multiple services and additional support.


HOW DO SERVICE COORDINATORS HELP?

Service Coordinators can assist families in a number of different ways:

  • Empower parents by providing them with support, resources and information tailored to meet their individual needs
  • Organize meetings/case conferences to bring together the family/legal guardian and all of the service providers for better planning, to reduce duplication and improve the level of support/services provided
  • Identify and assist families/legal guardians in accessing additional services and supports that may be helpful (e.g. respite, pediatrician, Best Start Hubs, recreational activities, Triple P)
  • Assist youth and families/legal guardians with the transition to adult services
  • Strengthen a family's support networks, both formal and informal
  • Coordinate community resources

We are the "go-to agency" when things get complicated.
