Don't forget to complete the Active Living Census and let us know what you need to be active, healthy and happy.

Monday 20 May 2019

Residents of Mount Alexander Shire can now complete the Healthy Heart of Victoria 2019 Active Living Census to help better understand what our community needs to be active, healthy and happy.

The survey will soon arrive in mailboxes of every household in the Loddon Campaspe region, but residents can save time and complete the survey online.

“This survey will help us to understand how people in our region rate their own health and wellbeing, and will also help us to find ways that we can work with other levels of government to support better health outcomes,” said Bronwen Machin, Mayor of Mount Alexander Shire.

This is the first time Mount Alexander Shire has participated in the survey. It was completed by residents of Greater City of Bendigo in 2014.

“We understand that the survey results were incredibly useful for the Greater City of Bendigo, who used the data to secure funding and successfully apply for grants,” said Cr Machin.

“The information will also help to guide our priorities on improving health outcomes within the community,” she said.

The survey is available online until Thursday 16 June at www.srcentre.com.au/ALC.

Everyone who completes the census before 16 June will be in the running for a chance to win bikes, food and shopping vouchers from a prize pool valued at $12,000.

“We want to hear from as many people as possible, so why not get involved, no matter how active you are,” said Cr Machin.

“This is the perfect time to tell us the activities you enjoy, where you do them and what would help you to be more active more often,” she said.

The survey takes around 15-20 minutes. Copies of the survey will be sent to all households in May.

Other councils participating in the census are shires of Campaspe, Loddon, Macedon Ranges, City of Greater Bendigo and Central Goldfields.

“Thank you in advance for your input and we look forward to receiving your responses,” said Cr Machin.
