The County of Wetaskiwin FCSS program proudly provides funding to Leduc
and District Victim Services and Wetaskiwin and District Victim
Services. According to the FCSS guidelines, “volunteer or community
development activities and prevention/early intervention programs and
services undertaken by a Victim Services Program may be eligible for
funding if they are determined to be a priority by a local FCSS board
and /or municipal council.” FCSS funding is provided to help with the
cost of training volunteers and promoting awareness.
Both Victim Services units exist as a means of aiding and assisting victims of crime and tragedy in partnership with the RCMP. These organizations of volunteers make every effort to ensure victims are not left alone to face overwhelming circumstances.
