Thrive Northumberland has a mandate to provide a leadership role on the issue of violence against women in Northumberland County by:
- advocating for an effective, accessible, and comprehensive response to violence
- promoting a greater flexibility and responsiveness of services/supports
- acting as a primary resource to municipalities, government, and agencies regarding violence against women
- coordinating and strengthening linkages to enhance supports to victims of violence
Over the next three years, our strategic aim is to become a leading Violence Against Women Community Coordinating Committee (VAWCCC) for rural communities in Ontario to benchmark against by implementing a collective impact framework that will directly (and proactively) address the challenges victims, survivors, and their families experience while seeking help from within the County’s support system.
