G21 Health & Wellbeing Pillar

Welcome to the G21 Health and Wellbeing website - supporting health and wellbeing for all people and places in our region.

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 and Wellbeing (HWB) Pillar.

The HWB Pillar has two guiding documents (right) that provide local government, peak bodies, education institutions, health and community organisations opportunities to collaborate on regional priorities.                                              


G21 HWB partner organisations have been working collectively to identify challenges in the Mental Health System regarding the care and outcomes for Refugees and Asylum Seekers in the G21 Region.
A group of 15 Iraqi and Karen new arrivals had the opportunity to participate in a seven weeks cooking course at Jamie’s Ministry of Food Geelong thanks to the G21 Health & Wellbeing Pillar.
