Community Mobilization is a partnership representing over 25 agencies from diverse community sectors – health, children’s services, justice, education, mental health and addictions, and social services. Working together, our Mission is “leading and connecting for improved community well-being through proactive collaboration and response.”
One aspect of the Community Mobilization program is the Rapid Mobilization Table (RMT), which was initiated in May 2014. Representatives from partner agencies meet twice each week to collaboratively identify situations that place Sudbury residents at high risk of harm. All necessary partners then plan and participate in a timely, coordinated response – connecting those at risk with the services and supports that can help.
There are also two local ad hoc situation tables; the Espanola and Area Situation Table supporting Espanola and the surrounding area (initiated in October 2018); and the Sudbury East Mobilization Table supporting the Municipalities of French River, St. Charles, Markstay-Warren and Killarney (initiated in October 2019).
Data collected from these tables is used is used to identify trends, common risk factors and potential gaps in community services. This information is shared with leaders and stakeholders in order to inform community planning and decision-making.
