Matrix columns (week numbers) and rows with no data but want to display ?

I'm trying to build a Matrix that shows week numbers across the top with a list of Sites that contain Lufts on the left. I want to show how many Callouts/Jobs have been created in each week. I've got that working but if there were no Callouts/Jobs in a week I'd still like to show that week column, similarly if there were no Callouts/Jobs for a particular Site/Lift i would still like to show that blank row.

I think i need to somehow select all Weeknumbers in a date range and Join that in some way to my main query and also include Sites/Lifts with no data in my main query ??

I've been trying all sorts of joins/sub queries but can't get it, can anybody help me please ?

here's the sql for my main query...

	s.id sId,
    l.id lId,
	count(c.ID) cCount,
    DATEPART (week,c.datetimereported) cReportedWeek,
	 WHEN l.liftshortname is Null THEN ' ** Site Level ** '
	 ELSE l.liftshortname
	END lLift

FROM   site s
       LEFT JOIN job j
         ON s.id = j.siteid
       INNER JOIN callout c
         ON j.id = c.jobid
       INNER JOIN jobline jl
         ON j.id = jl.jobid
       LEFT JOIN lift l
         ON jl.liftid = l.id
WHERE  ( c.datetimereported BETWEEN '01/01/2010' AND '12/12/2010' )
       AND ( s.id IN (SELECT id
                         FROM   site s
                         WHERE  ( contractid = 3005 )) )

group by DATEPART (week,c.datetimereported), s.id, l.id, l.liftshortname
