|Community Networks of Specialized Care|
The Southern Network of Specialized Care (SNSC) was developed to assist local areas to provide service to adults with developmental disabilities who need specialized care for co-existing mental illness and/or challenging behaviours (Dual Diagnosis).
The SNSC is made up of all individuals, service providers, academics and professionals with an interest in or who provide specialized services to individuals with a developmental disability.
The Network is guided by two co leads, a coordinator and local facilitators. The Network is structured into two tiers - one at the local level and one at the regional level. The work of these two tiers is guided by a coordinator, and assisted by facilitators. At the regional level is a planning and coordinating network (PCN) that is made up of people from across the region. Local Service Delivery Networks (LSDN) have been established in the 11 areas of the Southern Region which covers the geographic areas from Windsor to Tobermory to Fort Erie. It is their responsibility to address the service delivery needs in their local area. The Southern Network of Specialized Care is part of a provincial network, known as the Community Networks of Specialized Care.
The Southern Network of Specialized Care was established as a link between the eleven communities in the Southern Region. It's role is to: Develop and promote relationships; Education; Research; Recruitment/Retention; Data - Gap Identification; and Unified Community Voice.
