G21 HWB PILLAR UPDATE - SEPTEMBER 2019
There’s so much that occupies minds at this time of the year – reporting on activity over the 2018/2019 financial year, developing action plans for the 2019/2020 year and then all the collective planning for the coming year – not to mention work in our own organisations. G21 is no different.
 
Reports have now been submitted to DHHS, as well as assisting partner organisations to develop their collective plans for the coming year. We have also put together a work plan for all of us here at G21.
 
The key things happening in the Health and Wellbeing area include the release of the Victorian Public Health and Wellbeing Plan 2019-23, which will no doubt influence the planning cycle for the next round of Municipal Health and Wellbeing Plans. Council elections happen at the end of 2020 with the new Council Plan being developed soon thereafter. The PCP plan will finish in 2021 in order to align with these key documents.
 
The G21 Health and Wellbeing Pillar Roundtable is on Tuesday 10th September. The focus is on being physically active and the factors that enable or prevent people from taking the first step  to being active.  We look forward to providing an update on the outcomes shortly. 
 
Work continues with the HEAL Monitoring and Evaluation framework with a workshop planned for Monday 23rd September to present the Evaluation component for people to use over the coming year. This workshop is open to our partners working in the areas of healthy eating and physical activity, so I encourage you to come if it is relevant to your work. Please contact Liz Dando for further information on ldando@G21.com.au.
 
One of the key actions we are looking at here at G21 is how can we promote the depth of work being done by all our partner organisations. It would be useful to ensure that every organisation that contributes to the prevention work across the three domains understands clearly their contribution and the value to them and to the collective initiatives. One of the ways we have been thinking of doing this is through profiling people and projects. Yes, perhaps this could be you!
Please contact hwb@G21.com.au if you are keen to be interviewed or interested in finding out more.

We look forward to providing further updates shortly.

The Victorian public health and wellbeing plan 2019–2023 (the plan) continues the Victorian Government's vision for the public health and wellbeing of Victorians:

A Victoria free of the avoidable burden of disease and injury so that all Victorians can enjoy the highest attainable standards of health, wellbeing and participation at every age.


Did you know, 78% of employees who have been treated rudely said they felt less committed to the organisation?

Have you considered if you are actively encouraging respectful behaviour in your workplace?
