An autonomous, prosperous and sustainable community and council

Health & Wellbeing

Our Health and Wellbeing Program offers opportunities for people living in our communities to enjoy similar levels of physical, emotional and social wellbeing experienced by other Australians.

The Program fosters a sense of community and supports physical activity, sport, education and employment.

It aims to increase social participation through the engagement of Healthy Lifestyle Officers.

It looks at community capacity and empowers people through sport and recreational activities and targets people between the ages of 0 to 99 years (children, youth, adults and elders).

Our Health and Wellbeing team deliver regular ongoing activities including:

  • Strait Smile: a youth dental health program
  • Dance Kombat: a young women's dance fitness program.

We deliver sustainable community programs through partnerships with key government and non-government stakeholders.

The Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet fund the Health and Wellbeing Program.
