We work in partnership with community organisations to create a healthy and more active Western Australia. Our funding is prioritised to the health issues and population groups outlined in our Strategic Plan, Active Healthy People: 2018-2023.
- Fund activities related to the promotion of good health in general and aligned with our strategic priorities and population groups
- Support projects that aim to increase individual knowledge and skills, change behaviour, and create community and organisational policies and environments to improve health.
Our Health Promotion Project Grants fund a range of activities and campaigns to promote and encourage healthy lifestyles for all Western Australians.
Our priority areas:
- Increasing healthy eating
- Improving mental health
- Increasing physical activity
- Preventing harm from alcohol
- Creating a smoke-free WA.
Applications for innovative, sustainable projects that reach these target groups are strongly encouraged.
