The City of Mandurah is committed to providing opportunities for all community members to engage with activities or projects that will have health benefits and improve community connection. The new Public Health Plan will be developed in 2023. During this process, the community will be consulted on the priority areas they think are important for the City to focus on over the next 3 to 5 years. To ensure a healthy community, the City has a strong focus on prevention. Strong advocacy is key to filling the health gaps in our community. The City will continue to build strong partnerships with all relevant stakeholders to work holistically across the whole of Mandurah.
