A Question of Care
A Question of Care (QoC) is a Peterborough-based capacity-building initiative focused on building and strengthening skills, knowledge, and awareness to address the intersections between substance use, stigma, mental illness, and trauma. QoC creates spaces for mutual learning, respectful dialogue, and fostering collaboration between community members, as well as multi-sectoral collaboration and interdisciplinary practice between professionals. Our goal is to see helping professionals and community members feel better equipped in person-centred relationships, and for people living with complexity to see a reduction in the stigma they encounter in their communities.
Workshops, forums, and other events are offered at minimal cost with a focus on people in Peterborough City and County.
If you have any questions or would like to partner with us to offer a session, please contact us at or .
Question of Care workshops provide introductory strategies based on foundational frameworks on various subjects that are not meant to replace regulated training or provide formal certification.
Many local partners have contributed to the creation of QoC workshops, forums, and other events to support information sharing and skill development. These partners include the many agencies and individuals involved with the Peterborough Drug Strategy.
