Improving the welfare of the locals

By Jamil Allouche

The Moreland City Council has recently released a publication called The Moreland Community Vision. It outlines plans that will affect all people living in property in Brunswick, Coburg and other Moreland suburbs. A previous blog post examined how this will help the local economy to grow, thrive and provide residents with bigger range of services.

Another focus that is at the forefront of regional development is on improving the welfare of Moreland's people. This includes addressing issues around health, education, social connectedness and more.

There are initiatives being planned around improving the mental and physical health of Moreland locals. These include:

  • Bringing responsive and high quality health services by creating new medical precincts with the help of public, private and not-for-profit sectors.
  • Motivating people living in real estate in Brunswick and other Moreland suburbs to reduce drug and alcohol consumption, be more physically active, get connected with good quality health information and have more access to nourishing and nutritious food.
  • Managing and streamlining services that aid vulnerable children and families.

A big part of having a community is being able to enjoy the company of one another. To encourage this, the city council will create projects that will connect neighbourhood residents together, reach out to groups that might feel isolated from the community (such as indigenous populations) and stimulate growth in the attendance and popularity of local arts and performance events.

There will also be a push to improve learning opportunities in the area. Strategies to implement this include supporting school-based apprenticeships and traineeships, increasing access to educational facilities, and working with partners to produce better support for children in schools of all ages. According to the 2011 Census, Moreland had over 44,000 people receiving education from young age care, schools, universities and other institutes, meaning a large number of people could just benefit from this.
