Promoting Supportive Environments for Health in Wujal Wujal
Apunipima nutrition and health promotion staﬀ have been working closely with Wujal Wujal Aboriginal Shire Council to create supportive environments for good health.
There was a particular focus on addressing sugary drink consumption, tobacco smoking and physical inactivity. That work included installing water bubblers and water coolers around the community, and working with the community store to increase the range and number of healthy drink options.
To encourage more physical activity, we worked with Council to install 10,000 steps walkway signage around the community alongside a 10,000 steps community challenge to promote physical activity as part of a healthy lifestyle.
Apunipima has enjoyed working closely with Mayor Tayley and the Wujal Wujal Aboriginal Shire Council for their leadership and commitment to healthy living in their community.
