Physical activity is fundamental to active living and in turn the health and wellbeing of our community.  There are significant health, social, economic and environmental benefits to be gained when members of the community are more physically active.

A collective approach to achieving an active Western Australia is vital. To achieve this goal, Local Government needs to be supported, as well as work in partnership with State Government and the non-government sector. 

The foundation of the Local Government Active Living Strategy was based on strong Local Government engagement and the provision of guidance, models of best practice and professional development support.

The key focus areas of the Strategy were identified as:

  • Policy and Planning  
  • Coordination and Consultation
  • Resourcing
  • Training and Development
  • Communication and Advocacy
  • Research and Evaluation.
