Provincial Approach

The purpose of RCSD is to enable effective collaboration between Children’s Services, Community and Social Services, Education, school authorities, Health, Alberta Health Services, First Nations and community organizations at the local, regional and provincial levels.

Funding for RCSD is provided by the Government of Alberta. The funding is pooled and shared by the regional teams to address the identified needs and priorities within their region. In keeping with the collaborative focus, RCSD partners are the stewards of shared resources that support the identified needs of children, youth and their families within a given region.

The vision of RCSD is that children and youth reach their full potential. This vision supports partnering ministry business plans and aligns with the following outcomes:

·        Children and youth are successful.

·        Children and youth are health.

·        Children, youth and their families are secure and resilient.

The outcomes for RCSD: Partners share in their commitment to the outcomes of RCSD. Outcomes have been developed in three categories:

  1. Effective collaboration.

  2. Enable Supports

  3. System Improvement
