VicHealth envisions a Victoria where no young person is denied a future that is healthy. Regardless of their postcode, bank balance or background.
GippSport in partnership with VicHealth will work to improve the health and wellbeing of rural and regional Victorians aged 0-25, including those that face the most significant barriers. GippSport will:
Continue to deliver on the health, wellbeing and participation outcomes achieved for women and girls through the Regional Sport Program 2018-21.
Support planning for VicHealth’s Future Healthy initiative.
Increase young people's physical activity and social connection through participation in traditional or social sport, active recreation, active play, arts, and community- led activities; to be informed by consultation and engagement of children and young people aged 0-25.
Support planning for VicHealth’s Local Government Partnership.
How we will do this:
Implement or support local strategies to increase the engagement and consultation of young people in community sport and recreation (including involving young people in program planning) to ensure the supply of opportunities is informed by local needs and demand.
Provide more opportunities for less active regional Victorians – particularly children and young people aged 0-25 – to be physically active and socially connected.
Remove or mitigate the impact of barriers that limit the involvement and participation of children and young people aged 0-25 in sport and active recreation opportunities.
To support local planning with Fast Track Councils involved in VicHealth’s Local Government Partnership, which seeks to address local factors that directly affect the daily lives of children and young people and their opportunities for health and wellbeing.
