Make the Move Latrobe

12.02.2018

Project Objectives

Currently 57.5% of Latrobe City residents do not meet the daily guidelines for physical activity which is higher than the Victorian rate.

The lack of opportunities to participate in informal physical activity is a barrier for the local community in Latrobe City. The lack of activity is a leading cause of obesity and chronic disease.

Passive exercise and recreation programs will be developed under the Make the Move Latrobe project for different sectors in the Latrobe Valley community, including older people, isolated community sectors and employees with a focus on sedentary and isolated workers.  The aim is to promote greater physical activity and social connection.
