Find out how three Tasmanian organisations are making a difference to health and wellbeing in their communities. Jordan River Service, the Polish Welfare Office and Migrant Resource Centre tell the story of their projects, funded by the Healthy Tasmania Fund.
Polish Welfare Office’s ‘Fitness Fun for Seniors’ project supported seniors to improve their health and wellbeing through facilitated weekly group fitness classes with a focus on balance, stamina and muscle strength.
Migrant Resource Centre’s project ‘Multicultural Kitchen - A recipe for healthy communities’ promoted culturally appropriate healthy eating strategies for people from a refugee background by developing resources and building capacity of the community and sector.
Jordan River Service’s project provides affordable, healthy food to many people in their local communities, as well as many other communities across Southern Tasmania.
