Healthy living being encouraged at council level

By Jamil Allouche

With the increasing need for our cities to get behind helping people to become fitter and healthier, the recent memorandum between the Moreland City Council and Merri Health is certainly a step in the right direction.

Outlined in a 13 May media release, the memorandum of understanding will help the continued development of public health and wellbeing initiatives. This will also ensure that residents and their health are put at the forefront of the council plans to develop this important aspect of living even further. There's no price that can be put on the healthy lifestyles that we should all be living, and this move is encouraging people to better themselves as well.

With that idea in mind, real estate in Brunswick could soon be even hotter property than it has been in recent times!

What's being done to help our health?

Moreland is the home of some 160,000 people, and there is too high a percentage of those that have severe health issues, as stated in the media release, while also living in below-average socio-economic conditions. That's a potentially nasty combination. Underway at the moment, and being reinforced by the memorandum, is the continuation of the Moreland Early Years Strategy, which was initially in place from 2011-15.

"It's important for Council and Merri to continue to build on our strong partnership to strengthen services," stated Moreland mayor Samantha Ratnam.

"The signing of this agreement further cements our commitment to work in collaboration for the benefit of our community."

Merri Health Board chairperson Carlo Carli reinforced the sentiment about keeping people encouraged to live healthy, independent lives.

"We need to advocate and seek to grow services that will continue to support people to remain independent in their own home," he said.
