Health & Wellbeing Plan
The Health and Wellbeing Plan (previously known as the Municipal Public Health Plan) provides a set of strategic directions that guide the Council and its partners in working towards improving the health and wellbeing of the Warrnambool community.
It provides an overview of the existing policy directions and frameworks in relation to health and wellbeing at local, regional, state and national levels, and provides a summary of the current information we have about how the Warrnambool community is performing in relation to a number of health and wellbeing indicators.
The Plan defines Council’s role in improving health and wellbeing, and outlines a vision and set of strategic objectives to be pursued.
New health and wellbeing plan 2013-17
Every four years Warrnambool City Council develops a new Health and Wellbeing Plan. The Plan guides Council's efforts and highlights the community’s priorities to other organisations across Warrnambool who are working to improve the health and wellbeing of residents. The new plan will be completed by October this year.
To help identify priority issues Council has compiled the most recently published data which tells us about the health and wellbeing of Warrnambool's residents. This data profile, a summary fact sheet and a detailed report on Warrnambool's Health and Wellbeing are available for download on this page.
But this data is only part of the story. Council wants to hear from residents about the issues that concern you and learn what's holding people back from achieving better health. This will help Council to identify priority issues and ways in which we can achieve a healthier community.
