Following positive community feedback and engagement over the last 6 months, implementation of the Naracoorte Lucindale Wellbeing Program has been extended for a further two years until June 2023.
The Naracoorte Lucindale Wellbeing Program is a partnership between Naracoorte Lucindale Council and Wellbeing SA, supporting physical, mental and community wellbeing through the implementation of a range of wellbeing initiatives.
The first stage of implementation commenced in March 2021 and since then 12 separate initiatives have been implemented, involving 25 local partner agencies and engaging over 800 community members.
Popular activities delivered under the Program to date include the Carpe Diem theatre performance by Centre Stage Scripts, school holiday sports sessions, outdoor cinema at the Town Hall and come and try open days with the Naracoorte Singers, the Art Gallery and Men’s Shed.
Under the extended Program, a new Project Coordinator role will be created, several successful initiatives will be continued and a range of new activities included.
Naracoorte Lucindale Council Mayor Erika Vickery OAM said: “We welcome the extended partnership with Wellbeing SA that will create additional opportunities to support wellbeing in our community.
“This work aligns well with Council’s ongoing commitment to supporting community wellbeing through our parks and playgrounds, cycling and walking paths, community garden and library services.
“It has been pleasing to see so many community members involved in the Program to date and the positive feedback that Council has received about the programs and events.”
Wellbeing SA Chief Executive Lyn Dean said: “Wellbeing SA is excited to continue the partnership with Naracoorte Lucindale Council and the community to implement local wellbeing initiatives.
“These initiatives complement the work of Wellbeing SA in supporting communities to stay healthy, active and connected.”
