Extending A Hand in Friendship: Assisting Young Adults with Intellectual Disabilities Build New Relationships
By Andrea Ieropoli, Date of Project Submission: April 2015., Completed for: Heads Up for Inclusion; Supervising Professor: Sharon Beaucage-Johnson; Trent Community Research Centre, FRSC4890 - Forensic Community-Based Research Project, The purpose of this investigation is to identify best practices for facilitating programs that pair young adults with intellectual disabilities with another member of the community in order to develop a meaningful relationship between the two participants. In order to determine these best practices, seven interviews were conducted with organizations who currently facilitate such programs and an academic and grey literature search was conducted. The collected data was then compared to the current Amigos in the Community program facilitated by a local Peterborough not-for-profit agency, Heads Up For Inclusion. This comparison highlights the similarities and differences between this program and those of other established programs. Moreover, a list of suggested recommendations for the Amigos in the Community program has been developed for Heads Up for Inclusion in order to improve its’ current program. One recommendation is to host more community events so as to recruit new volunteers, increase community awareness of the programs available, raise funds for the program and offer pairs an opportunity to spend more time together. Another significant recommendation is to identify barriers to inclusion for participants such as access to reliable, accessible transportation. These recommendations along with others identified throughout this report are intended to assist Heads Up for Inclusion in improving their current program and ensuring it meets the needs and interests of their clients.

Comparing Models for Addiction Services
A comparative analysis of harm reduction and abstinence addiction treatment programs focusing on Peterborough City and County, Kawartha Lakes, Haliburton County, and Northumberland County has not been done. The present study researched previous studies in the field of addiction services, identifying the available services in the specified regions, surveying those services, and compiling data to determine the gaps in the current services to make future recommendations. This work is critical to addiction service research because substance use is a significant area of concern in the research area and across Canada. The study will aid in the identification and implementation of services needed in the four counties to reduce addiction and indirectly keep addiction-related offenders away from the criminal justice system. A literature review of harm reduction and abstinence was conducted using on-line portals. A questionnaire containing service details, client statistics, and gaps in services was administered to the available service providers and front line services including youth services and hospitals. Results show that individuals face many barriers when dealing with their addictions which include stigma, transportation, financial issues, and wait times for service. The current distribution of services is mostly harm reduction- compared to abstinence-based services but both serve equal males and females. The most prominent substance use is with alcohol, cannabis, and opioids. The significant gaps that currently exist are a lack of communication between services, a lack of funding for additional services, and a lack of residential detoxification centres and addiction supportive housing units., By Olivia Emino, Date of Project Submission: April 2015., Completed for: Human Service and Justice Coordinating Committee; Supervising Professor: Sharon Beaucage-Johnson; Trent Community Research Centre (, FRSC 4890 - Community-Based Research in Forensic Science

Review of the Job Creation Opportunities of Greater Localization of Food Supply and Consumption
Food localization is an economically viable initiative that addresses some wider themes associated with international development, namely, the question of food insecurity and self- sufficiency faced by local economies; and that of sustainable growth models of development, predicated upon the provision of alternative, local sustainable options for economic security. The challenges created by food insecurity and dependence on imports is compounded by the volatility and unreliability of global oil prices, which in turn has an effect on food prices due to transportation and fossil-fuel inputs costs. Localization aims to eliminate these issues by creating independent and self-sufficient community-based economies with structurally adequate forward and backward linkage food supply chains. Localization not only embodies an environmentally conscious model of growth, but it also fosters economic benefits for the economy mainly achieved through the direct, indirect and induced employment impacts originating from the food industry. The purpose of this research is to provide insight into how the employment potential of localization could be assessed, through a viable impact assessment tool. The historic and contemporary trends in Peterborough’s food industry justify the economic imperatives for a localization shift. Transition Town Peterborough (TTP)’s 25% shift committee has been conducting research on the economic development opportunities that an increase of 25% in Peterborough’s local food supply and consumption over a decade would generate, with specific attention to employment generation. Research undertaken by TTP suggests that the 25% shift will create a net economic benefit of over $400 million per annum for the local economy (TTP 2014). The purpose of this report is to further enumerate on the economic viability of localization for Peterborough, and to address the alleged and potential economic opportunities arising from its implementation, with special emphasis on job creation. This project also discusses impact assessment methodological options to capture the employment effects of localization. The paper begins by an executive summary and introduction, which set the scene for the analysis of the primary research questions and methodology. This is followed by a section on the findings of the research, informed by the methodology and the research questions. The final component comprises a section on recommendations and a conclusion., By Mutsa Danzvara, Date of Project Submission: April 2016., Completed for: Transition Town Peterborough; Supervising Professor: Paul Schaffer; Trent Community Research Centre Project Coordinator: John Marris, IDST 4220Y - Assessment of Development Projects

Trans-needs assessment
In 2007 the Trent Women's Centre commissioned a project through the Trent Centre for Community Based Education for a student to perform a needs assessment of the trans community at Trent University and within the city of Peterborough. The project outlined that the organization would like to assess how they are currently addressing needs of the trans community and discover ways in which they could improve serviceability to the community., by Kira Alleyne. --, Completed for: Linzy Bonham at the Trent Women's Centre; Supervisor: Richard Dellamora , [Trent University]; Trent Centre for Community-based education., Date of project submission: November 2008., CUST 392H, Cultural Studies, Community-based research project.
