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.
