+ BUILDING HEALTHIER COMMUNITIES WHERE WE LIVE, LEARN, WORK, AND PLAY
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.
A free online tool, Good4Work focuses on four areas – the way we work, the place we work, the way we connect and the way we lead.
WorkWell is a free workplace wellbeing initiative which aims to create a happier, healthier and more productive workplace. WorkWell uses a multi-level approach encompassing organisational, environmental and individual strategies and a planned framework to best support your business goals and employees. Being part of WorkWell enables step by step mentoring, resources, and recognition through accreditation.
Healthy Families Invercargill is working with the leaders in the community, and community champions to activate and support changes in the physical activity environment. Take a look at some of the ways our community champions are making a difference.
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.
Healthy Families Invercargill connected with members of the Southland Chamber of Commerce and asked what workplace wellbeing-related topics and information they would like to read about in the Chamberlink newsletters.
