How does CHSN assist the community?

“Being a member of CHSN and attending the network meetings opens the door to so many opportunities. These include being informed about planned community events; connected to the broad range of local and outreach services available; empowered by collaborating together to “make a difference to our community”. Regular attendance to CHSN Network meetings is a top priority for me in my Hub role”.
