Healthy Towns works in partnership with North Coast communities to design local initiatives to improve health and wellbeing.
- Build community connections to support health and wellbeing
- Strengthen communication between health and community services
- Identify and address service gaps
Healthy Towns will work with six North Coast towns in 2018: Casino, Maclean, Evans Head, Woolgoolga, South West Rocks and Lake Cathie.
We have selected towns with an approximate population of between 2,000 to 10,000 and a mix of demographics, health and service needs.
Rural and regional towns often have a strong sense of identity and belonging which provides a great platform for working together.
Local initiatives designed by local people are more successful in improving health and wellbeing outcomes.
Healthy Towns will work together with communities and service providers to design local solutions to issues that matter to you.
The program steps are: :
Tell us what matters to you.
What do you love about your town? What do YOU think needs to happen to improve health and wellbeing? Surveys and consultations will help us to find out what matters to you. Click links below to complete your town’s survey today:
Design local solutions to local issues.
Community members, NCPHN and service providers will work together to decide which
new initiatives should be prioritised and what they should look like.
Let’s make it happen! We will support communities to implement solutions. We will focus on actions that support health and wellbeing, develop connections and address gaps in services. Support will include funding, commissioning new services and building partnerships.
Give us your feedback.
We want to ensure that Healthy Towns makes a real difference. All our activities will be evaluated so we can keep improving our programs and services.
