Abstract: The Community Services Council was founded in 1976 as a non-profit voluntary organization. It coordinates and supports the activities of other voluntary agencies, works for the improvement of social services to groups such as the disabled, and conducts research on social issues.
In November, 1981, the Council launched its social policy newsletter, Social Perspectives, which is to appear four times a year. Each issue will include features on individuals, "who's who," upcoming events, workshops and conferences, and a review of social research in Newfoundland. In addition, several articles will focus on a particular theme such as Oil and Gas, the subject of the first issue. Articles here include: "Working on the Rigs: Close Encounters of Another Kind," "The Human Side of Energy: An International Forum," "Alcoholism and Family Life in Oil Rich Newfoundland," and "Oil and the Development Psychology." Together these articles indicate some of the social problems associated with oil and gas development and the efforts being made by voluntary agencies, government and industry in Newfoundland to deal with these problems before they arise.
