The Wellbeing Hub pilots are part of the Strategic Partnerships Program under the Statewide Wellbeing Strategy, led by Wellbeing SA. The Wellbeing Hub concept provides an opportunity to work in partnership with state government partners and local government to co-design and implement a range of local and targeted wellbeing initiatives, in response to COVID-19. Initial engagement has occurred with the City of Playford and Naracoorte Lucindale Councils.
Playford Wellbeing Hub
The Playford Wellbeing Hub will deliver a range of programs and services supporting physical, social and mental health and wellbeing in the community. The initiatives will centre on supporting young people, families and older residents to stay socially connected and active, with a focus on wellbeing through food, physical activity and other health and wellbeing supports.
Programs tailored to support young children, families, older people and individuals are on offer at the John McVeity Centre, 182 Peachey Rd, Smithfield Plains and The Precinct, 112 Coventry Rd, Smithfield Plains.
Activities will include ‘come and try sports’ at the John McVeity Centre (JMC), healthy eating through gardening and cooking programs, open days, art projects and other activities at The Precinct which support social and community connectedness.
The Playford Wellbeing Hub is a partnership project between the City of Playford and the South Australian Government under the Wellbeing SA Statewide Wellbeing Strategy.
