We are committed to providing Calgary citizens with a wide range of social services and recreation opportunities within their community.
Neighbourhood partnership coordinators (formerly community recreation coordinators) and program specialists work with their community partners to ensure the development and availability of a variety of social and recreational services for all Calgarians.
Working from offices in all regions of Calgary, neighbourhood service teams have been established to better respond to the specific needs within the community.
The City of Calgary has a team of community social workers located in specific communities across the city. Their job is to work with residents to identify social issues and neighbourhood-based solutions.
Our community social workers help residents contribute to their communities through leadership and volunteer opportunities, building individual skills and experience, and by connecting community members. When residents are provided opportunities, support and training they are more likely to feel empowered to make improvements in their neighbourhood.
The following services are offered by staff in the satellite offices:
- Community liaison
- Assessment and evaluation
- Social development
- Recreation development
- Youth development
- Special events
