Healthy Lifestyles

The Shire of Serpentine Jarrahdale is committed to the protecting, promoting and enhancing the health and wellbeing of its people. 

The Shires Health and Wellbeing Strategy identifies emerging health risks such as obesity and has identified programs to ensure the whole community has access to healthier foods, and the built environment is designed to promote active living. 

Together with traditional health protection programs, broader preventative health measures and an increased focus on health impact assessments to support planning decisions, the aim of the Health and Wellbeing Strategy is to enable the community to lead healthy, active and connected lives.
