Future Opportunities

IMPROVING ECONOMIC INCLUSION BY PREVENTING DISCRIMINATION

Background: HealthWest Partnership has commenced exploring the impact of discrimination on economic inclusion in Melbourne’s west. This builds on previous work on workforce mutuality/diversity since 2017.

Current: A major partnership with peak agencies and community is underway to identify community needs and perspectives. Partners include Multicultural Centre for Women’s Health and Centre for Multicultural Youth.

Future plans: Continued funding will allow us to undertake collective regional action to address the impact of discrimination on economic inclusion.

Supporting government outcomes:
This activity aligns with state government initiatives and policy such as:

  • Western Melbourne Metropolitan Partnership
  • Building from Strength: 10-year Industry Plan for Family Violence Prevention and Response
  • VCOSS’s 10 Year Community Service Industry Plan.

 


BUILDING EVALUATION CAPACITY

Background: Organisations funded to implement the Victorian Public Health and Wellbeing Plan require support to evaluate and provide evidence of their efforts.

Current: HealthWest is currently undertaking an Evaluation Capacity Health Check with these funded organisations.

Future plans: Continued funding will allow us to support organisations to improve health and wellbeing outcomes.

Supporting government outcomes: Victorian Public Health and Wellbeing Plan 2019-23.
