An Active Community: Helping women and girls get active

Share this:

Council is working with the community to help women and girls to get more active, more often.



Council has sought feedback from women and girls across the Shire to assist with the future development of recreation facilities and the programming of activities. 

Engagement Update

Engagement Update: 

28 women and girls from across the Shire provided feedback via an online survey. 

Council worked with Federation University students to analyse the information from this survey, together with survey data from from local residents and volunteer management groups from the North of the Shire.

What Happens Next
