G21 Health & Wellbeing Pillar

Welcome to the G21 Health & Wellbeing Website 

G21 – Geelong Region Alliance auspices the Primary Care Partnership (PCP) which is funded through the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services.  
The PCP works collaboratively to achieve regional priorities through the G21 Health & Wellbeing (HWB) Pillar.

The HWB Pillar Priority Project is Addressing Disadvantage.  There is significant disparity between advantaged and disadvantaged groups, with very high levels of relative socio-economic disadvantage within certain areas of the G21 region.  Families are experiencing significant poverty, which escalates the adverse impacts of poor mental and physical health, increased violence and crime, lower education outcomes and joblessness. The G21 Region Opportunities for Work (GROW) initiative has been established to work towards addressing this disadvantage.

The HWB Strategic Plan for 2017-2018 (right) also provides opportunities for local governments, along with peak bodies, education institutions, health and community organisations to collaborate on regional priorities and projects to improve the health & wellbeing within our community.
