Community Development Halton is a non-profit charitable organization and consists of three program areas: Social Planning, Volunteer Halton, and Age-Friendly Initiatives. The Social Planning and research component helps Halton communities assess their challenges and strengths to determine what changes are necessary to improve the quality of life of their residents. The Volunteer Halton volunteer component acts as a volunteer centre and is an advocate and catalyst for volunteerism, providing leadership and support for volunteer efforts in the community. Age-Friendly Initiatives strive to educate and advocate for the policies, services, settings, and structures that support and enable people to age gracefully, actively and with dignity, while giving a voice to issues of importance to older adults.
Mission: Through research, community development, planning, and promoting volunteerism, Community Development Halton strives to improve the quality of life for all residents of Halton.
