Community and Social Services Spotlight

The Community & Social Services (C&SS) Spotlight is intended to showcase performance data for select services that the department provides. This data will be updated on a monthly basis.

Community & Social Services is committed to improving the way it informs the residents of Northumberland County about the performance of their services. More measures and data sets may be added in the future.
