Transformation
CLBC's new service delivery model clearly defines the community's role in planning and evaluating service delivery. It also links community input to the organization and ensures necessary staff support for activities that engage the community. A strong accountability framework is built into the new service-delivery approach to ensure quality service delivery.

Planning and operational functions for service delivery have been clearly separated, to ensure individual and family needs are properly addressed. The traditional "social worker" position has been replaced by facilitators and quality service analysts:


Facilitators are assigned to each community living centre and are working in local communities with individuals and families on the creation of individualized plans and community strategies
Quality service analysts, located in quality services offices, determine eligibility, arrange contracts with service providers and monitor quality of service
What the changes mean for individuals and families


Families help decide what's best for them
More choices and flexibility
More involvement of community supports
Policies and rules are clearer and public
Greater community input in how supports are provided
No change if individual/family currently satisfied
What the changes mean for communities
CLBC will have a "community-first" focus in all of its roles and activities. Wherever possible, communities will be partners in making decisions about change and innovation and will be accountable for those decisions. – lessMore from ZoomInfo »
