Community Services

The North Lambton CHC offers many valuable services to all members of our community within our catchment area.

Social Worker

Social workers provide counseling, case management and advocacy to clients in our catchment area that are both rostered and non-rostered patients of the CHC. Our social workers are concerned with helping individuals, families, groups and communities to enhance their individual and collective well-being. We aim to support people with a range of concerns.

We listen to our clients, help them discover their own strengths and work with them to find suitable solutions or ways to cope with their problems. We can also connect clients with other services and supports available in the community.
