Municipal Well-Being Events

The Municipality of Meaford hosts events on an annual basis under the action items of the well-being plan. All well-being events are free to attend, with no advance registration required. Check out what we have going on below!

 Volunteer Recruitment Fair 

In the spirit of Volunteer Appreciation week, the Municipality of Meaford will be hosting their first Volunteer Recruitment Fair! This event will be held in partnership with the Municipality of Meaford’s Well-being Plan and the Meaford Public Library. The event will be held at the Meaford Public Library on Thursday, April 18, 2024, in two sessions from 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m.- 6:00 p.m.

This initiative stems from the action item in the Municipality’s Well-being Plan with the goal of offering an event for those interested in volunteering to discuss opportunities with organizations seeking volunteers. By connecting prospective volunteers with organizations who have current vacancies in this free and engaging format, we hope to promote resident involvement in the community and encourage the sustainability of local services.

Interested in getting involved in your community? Want to find out more about our community groups and available volunteer opportunities? Come to the Volunteer Recruitment Fair to connect with charities and not-for-profit organizations, understand what they do and how you can contribute!

The event is free to attend, no registration is required. Food and refreshments as well as live music will be included!

 More Opportunities to Get Involved! 

Annual Well-being Survey

The Well-being Survey is now closed. Thank you to all who participated.

The annual well-being survey is part of the Meaford Well-being Plan. It helps the Well-being Partnership track its progress toward the goals of the Well-being Plan and generates local data that supports future planning in areas that may impact you including crime prevention, mental health and addictions, and supports for seniors and youth.

Volunteer Opportunities

The Friendly Visiting Program - Become a Volunteer

This program is organized by Home and Community Support Services of Grey-Bruce and matches volunteers to an isolated senior, or adult living with a disability on a regular basis. 

The purpose of this program is to provide socialization and opportunities for isolated members of the community to interact with others. The Friendly Visiting Facilitator will work to pair clients with volunteers that share similar interests for a successful visiting relationship. Visits will ideally be in the client’s home; however, volunteers may also schedule social phone calls.

HCSS is excited to invite volunteers to join Around the World with Friendly Visiting!
