The City of Perth is keen to promote a happy and healthy community for those who live in the area, as well as those who work in or visit the city. To achieve this vision, the City of Perth has developed a community-based Public Health and Wellbeing Plan.
The City of Perth has undertaken extensive community consultation to assist in preparing the plan.
As a result, four key priority areas have been identified including:
- environment and health;
- healthy lifestyles;
- social health; and
- emergency management.
These four priority areas provide a framework for the Council to progress health and wellbeing at the local government level. This plan is then underpinned by strategies and actions to ensure positive results.
The City of Perth recognises adopting a whole of council approach, together with partnerships with stakeholders and the community have been essential for the successful implementation of the plan.
The City of Perth invited stakeholders, residents, visitors and city workers to consider the draft Health and Wellbeing Plan. Feedback was then evaluated and incorporated into the final Public Health and Wellbeing Plan, ensuring the City’s goals for health and wellbeing are aligned with the community so it can contribute positive outcomes.
