During 2017, SWPCP worked collaboratively with partners to support and align local prevention and health promotion activities with the 2017-2021 Municipal Public Health and Wellbeing planning processes of Corangamite, Moyne and Warrnambool City councils. The six health agencies, as well as other partner organisations participated in their respective shires.
Activities on the ground are owned by the partner agencies who deliver multiple approaches across multiple settings including early years services, schools and workplaces as part of a whole of community approach.
Examples of strategies currently happening are;
Winner of the Victorian Dept. of Education 2015 Outstanding leadership for Health and Wellbeing Early Years Award.
