City of Rockingham Health and Wellbeing Profile (May 2019)
Our Health and Wellbeing Profile was produced by the South Metropolitan Public Health Unit and the Department of Health WA. The profile demonstrates that the City of Rockingham plays a significant role in creating an environment for communities to prosper and enjoy good health. It influences many aspects of community life which contribute to health and wellbeing, e.g. urban planning, parks and facilities, transport, social support and community participation. The information in this profile will help to inform Council, the public, partners and other stakeholders about how well the local population is faring, and provide us with the evidence required to plan effectively for the health and wellbeing of the local community.
New Health and Wellbeing Strategy 2023 - 2028
We are in the process of developing a new Health and Wellbeing Strategy 2023 – 2028. The new Strategy will build on the successes and learnings from the implementation of the previous Health and Wellbeing and the Volunteering strategies, and will focus on key elements such as physical activity, healthy habits, community capacity, mental wellbeing, volunteering and social connections.
Health and Wellbeing Strategy 2018-2022
Our Health and Wellbeing Strategy 2018-2022 highlights the City’s vision for improving the health and wellbeing of the community.
Through extensive research of local community health needs and wider public health priorities, we have identified four priority areas which will form the key elements of the Health and Wellbeing Strategy 2018-2022.
The four priority areas of the strategy are:
- sport, recreation and physical activity
- social cohesion
- healthy lifestyles
- community education and awareness.
