Healthy Towns has launched and we need to hear your ideas!

The North Coast Primary Health Network’s Healthy Towns program has now launched in Casino, Evans Head, Maclean and Woolgoolga.

Community members and service providers came together in each community to share morning or afternoon tea, network with colleagues and friends, and find out more about the Healthy Towns program.

Have Your Say!

Healthy Towns community surveys are now open. We want to hear from all community members about what matters to you. Let us know what health and community services work, what doesn’t and what you’d like to see in your town to encourage a healthy lifestyle. Results will be presented at community action planning workshops in May and June. Together, we will come up with local solutions to improve health for local communities.
