Council is beginning a public consultation on the Health and Wellbeing of the Kingborough community.
Mayor, Paula Wriedt said Council had received a State Government grant to develop and implement a Health and Wellbeing Plan for the community.
“To help us develop the plan, Council will be running a public engagement with the Kingborough community,” Cr Wriedt said.
“The engagement will involve a community survey, consultation with health professionals, public workshops and events over the next eight weeks to gather and determine the community health and wellbeing needs before developing the plan.
“Events and workshops will provide ‘taster’ sessions like healthy cooking on a budget; low impact bootcamp sessions at Kingston Park; community yoga, nature activities and various health talks.
“Through this engagement Council will investigate ways of increasing social inclusion and connectivity through our nature, arts and cultural programs.
“Identifying gaps in community participation in health and wellbeing programs and finding the barriers to involvement will be a priority focus for Council during this engagement.
“We specifically want to look at ways to connect with those who are isolated and/or not currently participating in health/wellbeing programs.
“We hope to launch the Kingborough Health and Well-being for World Health Day in April, 2024.
