VicHealth is launching a new initiative that will be inspired by, shaped by and shared by the people of Victoria.
Our Future Healthy initiative is launching in September 2021.
At VicHealth, we envision a Victoria where no young person is denied a future that is healthy. Regardless of their postcode, bank balance or background.
We see a future with vibrant communities, where young people are connected, active, enjoy wholesome food and feel great.
We’re investing $45 million over 3 years. VicHealth is committed to investing in locally led solutions right across the state, and we’ll elevate the voices of young Victorians to inspire these investments.
Future Healthy will:
- Create neighbourhoods and spaces where people feel safe, welcome and confident to be active
- Improve access to healthy, delicious, affordable and culturally appropriate food
- Build meaningful social connections and inclusive environments
- Most importantly, Future Healthy will engage with young people every step of the way, so they can share their lived experiences, and help to inform and shape solutions.
We will continue to work with our partners to create a healthier and more equitable future for all Victorians.
We have a chance to make a big difference. And we’re taking it - Future Healthy.
