Council investigates hydrotherapy options for Bayside residents

Wednesday, May 30, 2018

Council is undertaking some targeted research to understand the community’s need for hydrotherapy. 

Research is being undertaken with physiotherapists, doctors, the local Community Health Service and representative community members.

Some residents previously accessed hydrotherapy, which was coordinated by Connect Community Health, at Berendale School in Hampton East. 

Access was reduced about 12-18 months ago due the Child Safe Standards requirements.   

Council has become aware that the State Government in its recent budget committed $13 million to St Kilda Football Club to redevelop its Moorabbin site. 

Part of the State Government’s financial commitment includes the construction of a community hydrotherapy pool. 

Council will be liaising with the St Kilda Football Club as part of our targeted research, to understand the level of community access that will be available at this facility.
