From May to July 2018, the South Grey Community Health Centre, along with Bruce and Grey Counties, launched the Live Well in Bruce & Grey Counties Community Wellbeing Survey. Both Counties will use the survey results to develop and improve services and supports for people living in their Counties. The survey included focused questions in the CIW's eight defined domains of wellbeing. The CIW analyzed data from the survey's responses and prepared two reports. Both outline the results of the survey and will be used to facilitate conversations aimed at developing innovative solutions to pressing challenges that affect quality of life at both the local community and County levels.
