Father with DaughterThe Community Social Plan (CSP) is a community development program that focuses on improving access and awareness of local agencies and services to residents in the City and County of Peterborough.

Current Activities

County Drop-in Centres

Municipality of Trent Lakes Projects

We work with the Trent Lakes Community Committee on projects that improve awareness and access to social and economic services.  Examples of projects include:

  • Meet Your Needs Days are events where residents have access to free clothing and household items.
  • Career and Information Fairs are held in March each year to link employers with local job seekers and for agencies to provide information about their services.

Seniors Program

Rewire your thinking about aging

The CSP has helped form the Peterborough Seniors Planning Table which is made up of local agencies, government, health care providers, educational institutions, and businesses.  Our goal is to improve services to seniors and make Peterborough a more age-friendly community.

Food Security

The CSP is a member of the Peterborough Community Food Network with the aim of improving food security for residents in the City and County of Peterborough. Part of this work involved the creation of a community food centre know as Nourish Peterborough.
