FAQs

We work with the community to identify the issues that are present and fall into what are termed the “social determinants of health”. These can be factors such as housing, employment, location of services, transport, gender, community culture among so many more. These factors greatly influence how we live and the potential for that to be a healthy one. We aim to address the factors that will have the greatest impact for our community.

Our team works on a four year planning cycle. We are now commencing our newest cycle and our plan is only weeks away from being revealed.

We will publish our plan here when it become available.

We work with the whole community. Individuals, businesses, sporting clubs, schools, our local governments, state government, NGOs, local clubs and associations, universities; the list could go on and on. Health is everybody responsibility and we will work with those willing to make a positive change to the health of our community.

If we are not already working with a group that you are connected with in the community, let us know about you and how we promote and can next bring about a healthier community. We consistently have volunteer and graduate roles in health promotion as well.
