Latrobe City Council is holding four themed community workshops to develop its Municipal Public Health and Wellbeing Plan. The sessions follow on from a comprehensive survey and postcard activity recording the community’s responses to a series of health and wellbeing questions.

Latrobe City Council’s mayor, Councillor Kellie O’Callaghan, said that the ideas and experiences shared at the workshops would ensure the plan would be community-led.

"We’re really looking to explore further the themes that came through in the neighbourhood surveys. The workshop sessions will focus on four broad topics: social and community connections; feeling safe; active and healthy living; and work or educational opportunities and financial security. The community is invited to attend one or all four workshops.

"We’re collating the data collected from our door knock and postcard surveys, as well as the in-depth survey that was available on our website. The responses to those questions will inform the draft health and wellbeing plan," Cr O’Callaghan said.

These workshops are open to community members and services to help us better understand needs and discuss new ideas where the gaps exist. This will allow us to see how we can work together with the community in this space to improve health and wellbeing outcomes.

"The workshops, being held in Morwell and Traralgon, will be catered and transport or other support needs can be provided on request. It’s important that we hear from as wide a spectrum of people as we can, so do please make some time to get to one of the sessions," Cr O’Callaghan concluded.
