When developing the Boroondara Community Plan, we examined data indicative of the health and wellbeing status of the Boroondara community. Overall, we discovered that the Boroondara community reports good health and quality of life.

However, the data does reveal areas of concern that require additional attention. In particular, there are 6 health and wellbeing priorities Council has chosen to focus on:

  • improving mental wellbeing and social connection
  • tackling climate change and its impacts on health
  • preventing all forms of violence
  • reducing harmful alcohol use 
  • increasing healthy eating
  • increasing active living.

These priorities represent significant preventable causes of poor health and wellbeing in Boroondara, and are areas where we can work with local health and community organisations to make changes to positively influence the health and wellbeing of the community.
