Help to Health Community Health and Wellbeing Consultation

Consultation has concluded

Project Overview

Our community had their say on the current state of community health and wellbeing within Clarence.
This project is part of Clarence City Council’s Help to Health project.

Your feedback will help to inform immediate and future directions to improve the health and wellbeing of residents and visitors to Clarence.

The aim of the consultation was to:

  • Review council’s six short Help to Health video clips;
  • Identify from the videos what is working for specific communities in our municipality, and what we can change in our health and wellbeing activities; and
  • Ultimately improve delivery of health-promoting activities in our community.

Consultation participants went into the draw to receive a $50 shopping voucher that was drawn on Friday 30 August 2019.


Project Information

Clarence City Council’s Help to Health project began in December 2017 in response to community needs identified through the GP Access Working Group and the GP Access Report released in August 2017.

The Help to Health project, aims to:

  • Improve health literacy

Consultation Results

This consultation was an extension of a community conversation event held on 4 July 2019. We received one community response via Your Say Clarence with the feedback received added to the feedback given at the community conversation event.

Feedback received through Your Say Clarence raised the positive and beneficial nature of access to local outdoor activities including cycle and walking tracks and the positive effect a walkway/cycleway linking Cremorne and Clifton Beach would have.


Consultation Outcome

The consultation responses form part of broader and ongoing consultation and research in relation to health and wellbeing in the City of Clarence. Council is one of four Tasmanian communities funded to take part in the Tasmanian Department of Health’s Anticipatory Care Project. Data gathering and analysis continues in partnership with the University of Tasmania. Stay up to date on the broader project and consultation here.

Feedback gained will be used in the process of reviewing and updating Clarence City Council’s Health and Wellbeing Plan and projects contained within the plan.
