Future Healthy

Help shape the solutions of the future

We’re working with young people and parents right across the state who are just as passionate as us about creating healthier communities.

Why?

We’re investing big bucks to support the young people in Victoria get Future Healthy. But what’s the point in us telling you what you need, when in reality we’re not sure? That’s why we want you to tell us.

We want you to be seen and heard, to tell us the good, the bad and the ugly of health in your community. Help shape the solutions of the future. No idea is too big or small.

And no one is better placed than young Victorians and parents to tell us how it is.

Why Now?

Looking after your health and wellbeing, or your children’s, can be tricky at the best of times. Not to mention the not-so-best of times. Times of bushfires, global pandemics, major social upheaval… times like the last few years.

But here’s the thing. With all that change comes a once-in-a-generation opportunity to do things differently. To set up young Victorians with the best shot at a future that’s healthier. Fairer. Better. No matter where you’re from, or how much cash you’ve got in your bank account.

And who better to shape a future that’s healthier for young Victorians than young Victorians themselves, and their parents?

What is Future Healthy?

What is<br>Future Healthy?

We have a vision of a Victoria where no young person is denied a future that is healthy.

We see a future with vibrant communities, where young people are connected, active, enjoy wholesome food and feel great. A future inspired by, shaped by and shared by the people of Victoria.

Future Healthy is an investment of $45 million over 3 years. Partnering with local communities with locally led solutions right across the state, elevating the voices and experiences of Victoria’s young people to create a healthier future.

Future Healthy will:

  • Create neighbourhoods and spaces where people feel safe, welcome and confident to be active
  • Improve access to healthy, sustainable, affordable and culturally appropriate food
  • Build meaningful social connections and inclusive environments

Most importantly, Future Healthy will engage with young people and their parents and carers every step of the way, so they can share their lived experiences, and help to inform and shape solutions.

This vision is only possible with collaboration and contribution from organisations like yours and from communities across Victoria. Together we have a chance to make a big difference.
