Planning for a healthier Bayside

Thursday, February 4, 2021

What are your ideas for improving health and wellbeing in Bayside?

Are you concerned about:

  • Feeling and being safe?
  • Building social networks and community connections?
  • Increasing rates of family violence, homelessness, alcohol and drug use?
  • Low levels of disability access, mental health, healthy eating and physical activity?

Help us develop Bayside’s Health and Wellbeing Plan for the next four years – have your say on what issues should be the top priority, and how we can work together as a community to address them.

Your feedback will be used by Council, local health service providers and community organisations to set policy and partnership priorities for the next four years, focusing on health and wellbeing trends that have the greatest impact on the community.

All engagement activities will enhance our aim to create a plan that is inclusive and reflective of our community.

As the first step in updating the Plan, Metropolis Research completed a survey of 400 residents in November 2020 to understand their views on how Council can best support improved wellbeing within Bayside. The data collected from the telephone survey has been used along with Census data to develop Bayside's Health and Wellbeing Profile 2021 – 2025. Find out what we know about our community so far.

Copies of Bayside’s Health Profile and the survey is now available via Have Your Say.

Feedback closes on Sunday 14 March 2021.
