Building Bridges to Protect Seniors from Financial Abuse
The purpose of this study is to determine how well known the services of the Community Counselling and Resource Centre (CCRC) are to the people of the Peterborough community, along with organizations and professionals in the community who serve the aging/senior population. The CCRC is a non-profit organization that provides credit counselling services, among others, to the community. The Peterborough community has the largest senior population in Canada at 19.5%. Senior financial abuse is prevalent in society and is determined to be the 3rd most prevalent type of senior abuse. Non-profit organizations are competing in a growing commercial environment. Three stages of interviews were conducted with staff at the CCRC, other community non-profit credit counselling agencies, and community members who work directly with senior members of the community. These interviews examined the problems that the Peterborough community was facing, why these problems occurred, and what problems were occurring in other communities. Interviews determined there is little to no knowledge of the CCRC’s credit counselling services in Peterborough. The CCRC has a lack of funds to complete accurate advertising in the community. These problems are not limited to Peterborough and also appeared in other communities. The findings demonstrate that there is a high need for more advertising in the community. To help combat these issues, the CCRC should hire volunteers for marketing, allocate more funds to advertising, prepare public education in the senior community, and establish community connections., By Leah Cino, Date of Project Submission: April 2016., Completed for: Community Counselling and Resource Centre (CCRC); Supervising Professor: Sharon Beaucage-Johnson; Trent Community Research Centre Project Coordinator: John Marris, FRSC 4080Y - Community-Based Research Project

Cafe Producer and Supplier Profiles
The Seasoned Spoon Café is a non-profit, vegetarian, cooperative cafe located in Champlain College on Trent University’s campus in Peterborough, Ontario. The Season Spoon Cafe is committed to improving food security of the local community. The Cafe Producer and Supplier Profiles community research project was designed to showcase the Season Spoon Cafe’s producer and suppliers through a web-based mapping application developed and embedded on the Spoon’s website along with a storyboard created for display at the cafe. These two deliverables highlight the organic, natural, and locally sourced food served at the Cafe and is intended to connect the Spoon’s community to a variety of their producers and suppliers. The main findings of this report show that: food sourcing occurs primarily within the desired foodshed; produce (fruits and vegetables) is the dominant type of food producer; and the Seasoned Spoon Cafe sources from a combination of small and large business operations for various products. Community members are encouraged to use these educational tools to meet their food producers and suppliers, and potentially source their household food from them. These actions aim to strengthen local food security of the Seasoned Spoon community., By Sarah Lidster and Sheena Young, Date of Project Submission: April 2016., Completed for: Seasoned Spoon Café; Supervising Professor: Peter Lafleur; Trent Community Research Centre Project Coordinator: John Marris, GEOG 4030Y - Community-based Research in Geography
