The Active & Healthy Alliance Gold Coast Inc. (previously the Gold Coast Physical Activity Alliance) was established in 2004, as a strategic partnership, aiming to increase access to health and wellness initiatives on the Gold Coast.
Gold Coast Recreation & Sport Inc is a Not For Profit Community Organisation and a registered Charity that provides recreational and sporting opportunities to people with a disability. GCRS has been operating on the Gold Coast for over 30 years and gratefully partners with the Active & Healthy Alliance.
This partnership supports GCRS to fulfill its mission, which is to enhance the quality of life of people with a disability by facilitating opportunities for participation and achievement in recreation and sport. The Alliance helps us to promote a positive image of people with a disability, and highlight their amazing abilities!
I wish to thank the Council very much on behalf of many participants of the Tai Chi in the park, Paradise Point. We have a very diverse age group, up to 45 people at a class (and increasing), and we all love the exercise and the social gathering. It has enhanced all our lives.
Our instructor, Iris is incredible – very kind and so informative.
Congratulations for this generous program, the best in Australia, and we hope we are able to partake in this event for many years to come.
Many thanks again,
Maggie Smithers, aged a young 71

The Active & Healthy Alliance have been a great way for my business to collaborate with others in the industry to help facilitate as many people as possible get out and active within the community. I have also had the opportunity to work with other businesses on different projects within this realm and it has been great to connect with like-minded businesses who are passionate about keeping people active for life.
