Below are the questions that have come in to email@example.com. Please continue to send in any questions you may have.
Q1: Just wanted to inquire whether or not Dufferin case management and Caledon ATR would be coming together as one team in the near future?
A1: It is likely that ATR case management staff currently providing services in Caledon will be part of the Dufferin/Caledon/Bolton sub regional team, however the structure of the teams will not be finalized for a few months yet. The final team structure will be announced once we have the management team in place. There will also be opportunities for staff to provide feedback as we go through this process.
Q2: Are you looking at increasing office space in some regions to accommodate the regional teams?
A2: As we go through this process we are looking at our space requirements as well. In the short-term you will continue to have the flexibility to work remotely that you have now, and in the long-term we are looking at additional office space in the sub-regions.
Q3: Can we keep some current teams, with particular expertise, together within regionalized teams?
A3: One of the goals of regionalization is to have expertise from different disciplines across a sub-region. Having multi-disciplinary teams will help to ensure better support clients. We are looking at establishing communities of practice within the agency such as Family work, addictions etc., to help staff in different disciplines across the regional teams to continue to collaborate and share.
Q4: What if there are more clients or referrals from one particular sub-region.
A4: The expectation is that eventually everyone will carry similar caseloads. Some people may have clients from another sub-region to support transient clients, transitions or complex cases.
Q5: When will all the managers be in place?
A5: We expect to have all the managers in place by the late summer.
