Sayward Community Capacity Project, 2018
The Sayward Community Capacity Project was a foundational, collaborative project aimed to improve the capacity of those living in the Village of Sayward and the Valley of Sayward to address the social determinants of health.
The project was focused on providing the community with the skills and expertise to access funding and start programs. Activities were planned to:
Engage the community around the social determinants of health
Improve skills through hosting skills-based workshops on topics such as grant writing and cultural safety
Identify, prioritize and act on local issues that contribute to the social determinants of health, such as connectivity, food security and transport
Develop strategies and action plans with community members, community partners and service providers
As a foundational, collaborative project it touched on a number of the social determinants of health, including positive mental health, social connectedness/family connectedness (healthy early childhood development), and healthy eating.
