Better Health in the West

Western Australia, we’re moving in for the next 5 years and we couldn’t be more excited.

Better Health Company is excited to announce that our family health programs will be delivered across Western Australia (WA) until 2027.  Funding provided by the WA Department of Health will support the state-wide rollout of community-based programs designed to help local families with children aged 2-12 years to lead healthier, happier lives.

Over the next 5 years, Better Health Company will be working closely with local communities to deliver both the Better Health Program and the Active8 program, across the state. Better Health Program (www.betterhealthprogram.org) is a healthy lifestyle program for children aged 6-12 years and their families, while Active8 (www.theactive8.org) focuses on the early years and is a healthy lifestyle program for children aged 2-5 years and their families. To make sure that families in regional and remote areas can access programs too, we have two delivery formats: group-based programs delivered in local communities or at home via e-learning modules and personalised health coaching. Both programs include weekly support from qualified health professionals, lots of great resources to support healthy behaviour change at home, and fun, interactive weekly sessions. Eligible families will be able to join the programs at no cost. 

Better Health Company has been delivering family-based, healthy lifestyle programs across WA since 2014 and nationally since 2007.  In that time, we’ve seen families achieve incredible results after participating in our programs, including increased fruit and vegetable intake, family activity levels and improved child self-esteem. These results have contributed to significant improvements in health outcomes, state-wide.  Our programs provide families with the unique opportunity to improve their health in a practical, helpful way, while at the same time, having fun and learning new skills.  Children who complete our programs tell us about the new friends they made and the fun they had; while parents tell us about the changes they’ve seen in their child and their family’s eating and activity habits.  After completing the program families feel informed, supported, and confident in their ability to create and maintain healthier lifestyles for their whole families. 

 

A non-judgemental, family friendly approach is integrated throughout all Better Health Company programs. Our programs are evidence-based, align with all current Australian guidelines and recommendations, and have been designed and developed by leading health professionals with extensive experience in child health, nutrition, activity, and behaviour change.  Our programs put families first, always. 

 

Better Health Company will commence program delivery in October 2022.  We are accepting registrations now.
