Community members and service providers came together in Woolgoolga to celebrate the launch of North Coast Primary Health Network’s Healthy Towns Community Action Plan in June.
Following 18 months of community consultation and co-design, NCPHN is funding approximately $100,000 of community health and wellbeing initiatives in Woolgoolga.
