+ CREATING SMOKEFREE PLACES AND SPACES FOR OUR CHILDREN
The way we do it: Healthy Families Invercargill takes a collective approach when it comes to helping create a community where the healthy choice is the easy choice. We are about thinking bigger, working together with the community, and activating leadership at all levels to drive sustainable, healthy change. It's about working with local leaders to find local solutions.
DOING IT TOGETHER
Healthy Families Invercargill is an active member of the Smokefree Murihiku network, a group of organisations working together to support moves to reduce smoking rates.
One of the main roles of Healthy Families Invercargill is to understand our community's needs. To this end, we work extensively with community organisations and champions to gather the voice of the community, and community insights, which are then used to inform decision making processes at high end level. Below are examples of the work we have done in this area.
