Healthy Tasmania | We were built to adapt 

 

Lucky, because that’s what we’re all having to do during COVID-19 and it can be scary.

 

Our jobs have always been focussed on bringing people together to solve community problems, so we can all stay connected and be as healthy as we can be. Yep, we’ve got a big job ahead of us right now, eh?

 

We can’t do that like we used to so we’re changing, and will keep changing daily and trying new things so that our people, and your people, can be distanced but not disconnected. 

 

There are so many ways that we can do this.

 

In the first instance we are working to deliver our community and workplace health and wellbeing programs online or in other creative ways. (You can keep up with those programs via Facebook such as Active Launceston, Healthy George Town … you might even get to meet our dogs or get a tour of the house too!)

 

Right now we are working with other community groups and partners on projects that will help YOU, as a community member, feel confident you nkow how to help those who are most vulnerable in our community right now - because what CAN you do, when you can’t make a casserole or give someone a cuddle?

 

We are problems solvers. We are health and wellbeing promoters. We are project managers. We are innovators. We are doers.

 

We help people understand why their health matters and use our words and our stories to make it easy for them to make changes.

 

We bring people together to solve problems and get the job done.

 

We need this now more than ever.

 

We want to help you and those people who are important to you. 

 

We’d love to kick around your idea and see who and what we can bring together to keep your people safe, connected and healthy.

Health Speak

We're podcasting!

We’re podcasting! We’re working with City Park Radio to create a podcast series about… well… ‘health people’. Yeah, that’s right, all the people who are meant to help you look after your health. Who are they? How can they help? What do they really do? And why do they care? These short, funny and easy to understand stories will demystify ‘health speak’ and introduce you to some of the people who really want to help you to look after yourself and your health… turns out most of them are pretty cool. More information to be released soon. This project has been funded by the Healthy Tasmania Community Innovations Grants through the Tasmanian Government

Healthy Performance

Coaches, Parents or Young Athletes - tune in!

Do you or someone close to you lack the capacity to undertake specific strength and conditioning training to enhance their game? We are pleased to be offering ‘Healthy Performance’, a strength and conditioning program designed specifically for players who wish to take their performance from ‘good’ to ‘elite’ or need support to make gym-based training work for them.

Storytelling for change | Speaking, mentoring, training

Steve Jobs once said "The most powerful person in the world is The Storyteller" yet most people and organisations have work to do if they are to step into this power. Don't worry, we’ve got you covered! We've designed a suite of workshops, keynotes and mentoring programs to help you or your organisation understand, then harness the science of storytelling.  You'll learn to build community buy-in, influence decision makers and create real and lasting change in your community and organisation. We'll teach you how to find your authentic voice, understand your audience and confidently present what you know in a way that makes other people take notice and take action.

A guide for healthier catering

When planning your next lot of catering at functions and events, why not make it healthy and lead by example? We've done the hard work for you and have put together a simple healthy catering guide to help you select your menu whther you're doing it inhouse or ordering in. Easy!

Healthy George Town

**To ensure your safety, this program is currently running online sessions on their Facebook page here**

 

We are spending LOTS of time in George Town right now and we couldn’t be happier. We’re working with the George Town Council and a range of partners to pull together a community-wide health and wellbeing initiative called Healthy George Town. Healthy George Town is about supporting locals to form the sorts of healthy habits that they’ll be likely to keep and will improve their overall health and wellbeing for life. This initiative gives the community access to free programs, resources and networks to best support them to be as happy and healthy as they can be. To access click here.

Workplace Activation | We'll do the hard work for you

Does your health and wellbeing policy need a once over? The research is clear that creating a healthy workplace is good for business, however the process of creating and putting a plan into action can often be unclear and time consuming... but not for us! We’ve been working with organisations to develop the sorts of holistic policies that mean something to employees.  Healthy Tasmania Pty Ltd has extensive experience developing, implementing and evaluating holistic health and wellbeing strategies for Tasmanians in their work environment and we'd LOVE to chat with you and your team about the possibilities and outcomes for your workplace. Click through for more details and get in touch.

A tribe of community storytellers

We’ve been busily creating a tribe community storytellers to help solve some of Tassie’s toughest problems. WE LOVE this project – it truly recognises how people get their information, who they trust and taps into the science of storytelling to spread information into our communities in a way that is heard, remembered and relevant. It’s been awesome working with people who are so passionate and now equipped to use their stories to make a big impact for the kids growing up in their communities. It’s been such a pleasure working with the B4 Early Years Coalition on this one, who are pushing forward and happily taking innovate steps to make change happen more quickly
