The City’s Active and Healthy Lifestyle program has been in operation for 15 years and provides significant community benefit at excellent value for money. The Active and Healthy Lifestyle team utilise a private and community partnership model and as a result the City delivers the program and associated events with a relatively small budget and leverages the partnership model to gain additional value.
The Active & Healthy Program activates public open space and community venues and facilities assisting to reduce barriers that prevent the community from participating in regular healthy lifestyle activities. The program demonstrates a commitment by the City to enhance community health and wellbeing positively contributing to the Gold Coast’s quality lifestyle attraction and liveability.
