Early Childhood Development

Statistics from the Australian Early Development Census Community Profile 2018: Latrobe Victoria show that a large number of children in Latrobe City are not equipped with adequate literacy and communication skills when they start primary school. The Latrobe Health Assembly is about to begin piloting a range of exciting new programs in this space.

Mental Health Cafe

Many people in our community struggle to access support after hours. Evenings and weekends can be a lonely and distressing time. A mental health café model has been co-designed to help address these issues. With the support of Larter Consulting, a model tailored to the Valley has been developed. This model is a product of people with lived experience and service providers working together to design the right service for our community.

The plan itself seeks to bring people together to take action on areas that will improve the experience of chronic disease in Latrobe over the next five years (2022-2027).
