Advisory Councils

Grandview Children’s Centre is fortunate to have a Family Advisory Committee (FAC) that provides useful feedback and suggestions to our Executive Director and Board of Trustees.

Grandview benefits from the experience, knowledge and insight that family members and Grandview Kids contribute. Their great ideas help us to continue to improve the way we serve children and youth in Durham Region.

The FAC reports to our Executive Director, Lorraine Sunstrum-Mann.

The FAC acts as a resource to the Board and to the Executive Director, and provides an opportunity for families to have input into strategic decisions that affect families, clients and/or potential clients of Grandview Children’s Centre. The FAC also hosts networking and social events for families of Grandview Kids.

Committee members are expected to attend monthly board meetings in Oshawa on the last Thursday of each month, and to be involved in additional committee work, or events.
