The Health Promotion Agency offers Active Healthy Strong Community Partnerships of up to $5,000 to support community-led initiatives that encourage families and whānau to be active.
They have produced some profiles of community partnerships funded in 2014/15 and 2013/14. These profiles showcase how community groups encouraged local families to be more active.
"Four whānau groups from Hokitika experienced the thrill of finding, gathering and cooking kai from the land and sea. They did this as part of an HPA funded project. The participants were young mums and their small children — many without the knowledge, money or transport to do this on their own. Along the way they gained new skills and new friends. They also got to visit parts of the West Coast that some hadn’t seen before.".
