Southern Grampians Glenelg Primary Care Partnership acknowledged that their programmatic work towards healthy eating and physical activity was not making an impact on obesity in the community. A partnership was formed with Global Obesity Centre (GLOBE) at Deakin University and they commenced co-creating an approach towards changes at multiple levels of the system, and mobilisation of the broader community to become change makers. There was an agreement that children need to be the primary target group for this work, whilst recognising the whole community needs to engage in taking action to provide universal benefit.

2015 – 2022 | Central Hume | Goulburn Valley

The Alpine Active Living Mapping Project aimed to understand why local Alpine communities were not meeting Australian Physical Activity and Sedentary Behaviour Guidelines and to identify barriers and opportunities for physical activity that existed locally. Data from a physical activity survey revealed that the Alpine Shire had less than 50% of its population undertaking sufficient physical activity with 30% of the population being overweight and 18% obese. The project started with research and community consultation and made a range of recommendations, which resulted in an Active Alpine Group being established, who developed an action plan in 2019.
