Stories of Participation: Partnering With the Community to Improve Health and Wellbeing

Community participation in health leads to better services, better access and a better experience for everyone. At HealthWest we recognise community as a valuable partner in improving the local health system.

This video explores the experiences of community members who partner with organisations to improve health and wellbeing. Community participants discuss what it’s like to partner with an organisation and give advice to community members and organisations alike.

It was developed by HealthWest with the assistance of members of the Community Engagement in the West Network. We hope it encourages community members and organisations to consider partnering together to improve health and wellbeing in their own communities.
