We advocate on behalf of local government to improve community health through public health regulations and plans.
Developing frameworks, case studies and guides is another way we assist councils with their own health policies.
Cancer Council Victoria has launched their LiveLighter campaign, a statewide social marketing initiative to promote healthy weight through healthy eating and physical activity.
The MAV has signed on as an official LiveLighter supporter and is encouraging councils to also consider joining this campaign.
In partnership with the Heart Foundation, the Cancer Council Victoria will ensure LiveLighter also provides a wealth of information, resources and tools to support and encourage people in making and maintaining positive lifestyle changes.
The Cancer Council can also forward information that has been provided to Healthy Together Community-funded councils, such as media and public relations materials that you may wish to use.
For further information, email the Cancer Council or phone 03 9514 6835.
