G21 Health & Wellbeing Pillar

The G21 Health & Wellbeing (HWB) Pillar provides a forum for organisations with an interest in the region’s health and wellbeing to work together on strategic priorities.

As the region’s Primary Care Partnership (auspiced by G21), the Pillar supports healthy places, people and coordinated care through a clear vision, purpose, strategic directions and governance system.

The HWB Strategic Plan (2017-18) guides the Pillar's priority areas for collaborative effort; healthier eating and active living, promoting gender equity, improving social connectedness and mental health and wellbeing, capacity building and leadership.

The Pillar has also identified Addressing Disadvantage as a priority. Disparity between advantaged and disadvantaged groups in the G21 region is very high.  Families are experiencing significant poverty, which escalates the adverse impacts of poor mental and physical health, increased violence and crime, lower education outcomes and joblessness. G21 Region Opportunities for Work (GROW) has been created to tackle this.
