Make Your Move Latrobe

GippSport, in collaboration with the Latrobe Health Assembly, is leading the Make Your Move Latrobe project which aims to promote a more vibrant, healthy and active Latrobe Valley work force and community.

Make Your Move Latrobe is seeking to work directly with the Latrobe Valley community, including older people, isolated communities and employees within Latrobe City workplaces with a focus on sedentary and isolated workers.

Phase 1 of the Make your move Latrobe Project is complete. The overarching objectives of Make Your Move Latrobe Phase 1 were;
Increase physical activity levels of targeted cohorts within Latrobe City and increased community capability to maintain physical activity opportunities.

  • Increase social inclusion and social connection for communities through the provision of a diverse program of activity across Latrobe City.
  • Increase education and knowledge of physical activity benefits and local initiatives.
