We are Shaping The Valley
The primary role of the Assembly is to facilitate a new way of working to enable the community, local and state-wide agencies and government to work together to improve health and wellbeing in the Latrobe Valley.
View our community projects to see the various ways we are already achieving this.
Clowning around to share hope and optimism
In a year that has seemed more like a circus, the Latrobe Health Assembly has asked Koko the Clown to dust off his oversized shoes, Fairy Willow to stretched out her wings and Ringmaster Tanya to brush her top hat for a very special recorded performance applauding our local students, teachers and parents/guardians on a job well done in 2020.
Well done students, we know it hasn’t been easy, but you have done an amazing job. Enjoy your summer holidays, remember to stay connected with your friends and family and remain COVIDsafe.
Now sit back and settle in for a laugh with Koko the Clown, Fairy Willow and Ringmaster Tanya.

A discussion with Dr Rob Gordon
During the early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Latrobe Health Assembly has released a video featuring Dr Rob Gordon (Clinical Psychologist) who delved into the many of the emotions we all may have experienced during that time. Now with the state going back to Stage 3 Restrictions, this informative video is just as relevant now as it was then.
In response to the Hazelwood Mine Fire Inquiries the Victorian Government designated the Latrobe Valley as a Health Innovation Zone, the first of its kind in Australia.
The formation of the Latrobe Health Assembly is a key component of the Health Innovation Zone, paving the way for a new era of community engagement, health improvement and integration of health and community services for people with complex conditions.
The Latrobe Health Assembly offers the community a chance to drive health and wellbeing priorities and consider new ways of working with local services and government, with a focus on innovative ideas and approaches.
The majority of members are from the community, with a diverse representation from various locations, professions, demographics and connections to communities and groups.
