Safe Communities Wellington County Re-Designation

WELLINGTON COUNTY – Safe Communities Wellington County (SCWC), under the guidance of Parachute Canada and The County of Wellington, made its’ mission to make “Our” County the safest and healthiest place in which to live, learn, work and thrive since being designated in 2013.

Our upcoming re-designation requires everyone from across Wellington County to participate.  Your opinions are important to us and we were excited to receive over 300 public surveys from you.  Community involvement is vital to the success of Safe Communities Wellington County (SCWC), but we are also interested quantitative data.  Data pulled from Emergency room visits, hospital stays, along with our priority setting exercise, will help Safe Communities Wellington County determine the priority categories within our communities.  Motor Vehicle Collisions, Falls, and Intentional Self-Harm are the current priorities for SCWC. 

We are looking forward to updating everyone following the Priority Setting Exercise when we unveil our new priorities and our new strategies to keep Wellington County safe!

We are always looking for passionate individuals or organizations that are interested in partnering or participating with Safe Communities Wellington County! Please contact Program Co-ordinator Christine Veit at for more information. Follow SCWC on Twitter @safecwc and on Facebook.
