If you are currently not as active as you would like to be, Douglas Shire Council would like your input.
Council is seeking feedback to assess the needs of our community to help with our funding application to State Government’s Get Out, Get Active program.
The objectives of Get Out, Get Active are to support councils to:
- provide enjoyable, accessible and affordable activities aimed at increasing sport and active recreation participation of women who are not physically active
- facilitate sport and active recreation projects that encourage innovation and partnerships that meet the needs of inactive women in the community
- improve the sport and active recreation experiences of women, from school-leaving age through to seniors, to encourage a culture of life-long participation.
One-off funding is available to Councils to develop and deliver activities that support the program objectives.
Mayor Julia Leu said the Get Out, Get Active program was a great way to get fit in a fun environment.
“Council is keen to have the input from as many women as possible in the Douglas Shire so we can demonstrate the importance of fitness in our community and submit a strong funding application,” Mayor Leu said.
“By filling out the questionnaire, it will enable Council to tailor a Get Out, Get Active program that provides the most benefit for women in our communities.”
From school leavers to seniors, please return completed questionnaires by 4.30pm July 7.
