Latrobe Health Assembly Strategic Plan 2020 - 2025

This document reflects a shared vision and plan for the future. Accordingly, it’s creation has been a collaborative process involving direct consultation, workshopping and evidence-based research. Coordination of this process has been led by Assembly staff and informed by The Latrobe Health and Wellbeing Charter, as well as guiding documents and key stakeholders.

The Assembly staff have conducted evidence-based research to help inform its strategic objectives.

Latrobe Health and Wellbeing Charter

The Latrobe Health and Wellbeing Charter defines the values and guiding principles of the Latrobe Health Innovation Zone.

The Charter was written in collaboration with Latrobe Valley communities and organisations dedicated to improving health and wellbeing in the Latrobe Health Innovation Zone. It is a living document and may change over time to reflect the changing needs and priorities of Latrobe Valley communities.

The Latrobe Health Innovation Zone consists of the Latrobe City local government area. Within this zone, action is inspired by the Charter’s values and principles.

Living Well Latrobe Health and Wellbeing Plan

Living Well Latrobe is Latrobe City Council’s Municipal Public Health and Wellbeing Plan (MPHWP) 2017-2021, adopted on 23 October 2017.

Latrobe City council conducted a Community Engagement between May-July 2017 to understand what makes us happy and healthy. This included surveys, workshops and conversation cafes with our community to share the results and further understand ways to improve our health and wellbeing. 

The Draft Plan was developed from this feedback which highlighted the main focus areas and in September – October 2017 a community consultation was completed to gain further feedback from our community. From this Living Well Latrobe Health and Wellbeing Plan 2017-21 was created.

Victorian public health and wellbeing plan 2019–2023

It is a requirement of Victoria’s Public Health and Wellbeing Act 2008 to produce a plan every four years. In this plan we set out a comprehensive approach to deliver improved public health and wellbeing outcomes for all Victorians.

Informed by extensive community consultation, the plan balances a need to narrow focus to drive coordinated action while supporting local innovation.
