Outreach - Rural Wellington Community Team

The Rural Wellington Community Team understands that it’s hard to reach out and find the resources you need when you need them.

We work in the community and with each rural health team to connect you to community agencies, help you to navigate social programs, and support you when family or friends can’t help.

We know that there are many factors in your life that can affect your health.

When people have support, they live healthier lives.

The East Wellington Family Health Team has an Outreach Worker available to help you with those connections. Care Coordinators with the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA-WW) and the Waterloo Wellington LHIN-Home and Community Care (WW-LHIN) work together with the Outreach Worker to support you with other services they provide.  Call/text our Outreach Worker at 226-820-1120 for more information.
