Community

At Latrobe Community Health Service, we believe that everyone has the right to participate in community life.

Access for everyone

Are there physical, emotional or social barriers preventing you from accessing our services, or from participating in the broader community?

We provide a range of services to ensure people from a diverse range of backgrounds get the support and care they need.

This includes access to Auslan interpreters, other translation services, emergency relief for those in acute trouble, and specialised services for members of the Koorie, migrant and refugee communities where we work.

Healthy communities

One of our aims is to improve people’s health by addressing the underlying causes of health problems.

We engage individuals, schools, workplaces, food outlets and community organisations to help create ‘health promoting’ environments where the healthy choice is the easy choice.

We use local partnerships and a skilled health promotion team to encourage healthy eating and physical activity, reduce smoking and harmful alcohol use and improve mental health.
