Community & Health

Moira Shire Council believes the health and wellbeing of residents to be of great importance and has committed time and resources for the improvement of residents' health and wellbeing.

At a local level, Council directly influences public health and wellbeing through direct service provision in areas such as Maternal and Child Health and Immunisation. Urban planning, management of natural resources, social connectedness, transport and access are other key areas for which Council plays a key role. Research has shown these are key factors to good health as set down by the World Health Organisation.

The draft Municipal Wellbeing For All Ages Strategy 2017-2021 - currently out for community consultation - gives strategic direction to Council by identifying the priority issues and needs for health and wellbeing of Moira Shire residents. The strategy is supported by a number of agencies that are experts in their field, as it relates to health and wellbeing, and is reviewed annually.

Working with senior citizens clubs, disability advisory groups, preschools, schools, police, community health services, including mental health services, community/learning centres, primary care partnerships, drought response services and MHA Care Inc, with representation at a decision making level, ongoing promotion and lobbying for the best outcomes for the health and wellbeing of Moira Shire residents will occur.
