We have recently refreshed the format of our newsletter to focus on providing useful and informative information on the HWB Pillars work and current projects.
We plan on improving the cross communication between people and ideas, and encourage you to find out more by visiting our website www.g21hwbpillar.com.au
Your feedback is always welcome and appreciated.
With the end of the financial/planning year upon us, working groups and project partners have been busy reviewing the work completed over the past 12 months, as well as optimistically looking towards the next year of activity. The PCP team have also been collecting case studies to provide a comprehensive review of the 2018/2019 year.
We have now completed the first year of the current three-year HWB Strategic Plan 2018-21 which focuses on three domains: enabling healthier lifestyles; preventing violence against women; and improving mental health and well-being.
There is a considerable body of work happening in the 'Enabling healthier lifestyles' domain, which focuses on healthy eating and active living, and relies heavily on the importance of partnerships and collaboration. Partnerships that deliver support, ideas and engagement are crucial for delivering benefits to our community, and ultimately enabling better health and well-being outcomes.
We look forward to providing further details of the work planned for 2019-20 over the coming months.
G21 is also working with Women’s Health and Wellbeing Barwon South West and the Sexual Assault Family Violence Centre to determine the need for regional co-ordination around the Prevention of Violence against Women domain, and is working towards a more connected approach.
The current HWB team who help support and develop the partnerships that underpin the PCP work include:
Liz Dando (Monday, Thursday and Friday 8.30 am – 4.30 pm)
Toby Crook (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, 9.00am – 5.00pm) and
Kate Smith, who recently returned to G21 after 12 months maternity leave (Monday, Tuesday and Friday 9.00 am – 2.30 pm).
and myself, Jill Evans (Acting Director of the HWB Pillar while Zoe Barnett is on maternity leave).
We look forward to providing further updates shortly.
